EJF Spotlight: Holly Wonneberger

Holly spent her summer working in Brooklyn, NY for the Center for Popular Democracy, a national organization with many successful public interest lawyers. Her work focused on a campaign to keep charter schools accountable. Holly also worked on other areas of public interest, such as immigrants' and workers' rights and community police oversight.

"I learned so much from my experience there, from polishing my legal research and writing skills, deciding the legal feasibility of policy proposals, sitting in on meetings, and even protesting at the Federal Reserve on Wall Street. CPD was a very exciting place to work, and I am so grateful I was able to accept this opportunity with the help of EJF."

EJF Spotlight! Hali Kerr

Hali Kerr, a 2L at GULC, spent the summer after her 1L year working at the Department of Justice, Environment and Natural Resources Division (ENRD), Environmental Defense Section.  The majority of Hali’s projects involved litigation brought against federal agencies under the Clean Water Act; the Clean Air Act; and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act.  Hali’s involvement with ENRD didn’t end at the office.  While her summer was filled with significant legal matters, she still found time to decompress and join in on ENRD’s softball games.
“It was a really fantastic summer because I had the chance to work on real substantive issues with the nation's largest environmental law "firm" that just happens to represent the U.S.A. That was priceless. Thanks so much to EJF for making it possible!”

EJF's Live Auction took place January 29, 2015 in Hart Auditorium and was a HUGE SUCCESS. Check the Facebook page for updates about other ways to help fund public interest activities for Summer 2015
