Skadden Fellows Support Immigrants’ Rights

Winter 2009

Columbia Law School student Carrie Acus Love ’09 and recent graduate Tanaz Moghadam ’08 recently received notice that they were selected as Skadden fellows. With the fellowship’s support, each will pursue two-year public service projects in the area of immigrants’ rights. The two women join the more than 30 Law School graduates who have been Skadden fellows over the past 20 years.

Love will work for Western Massachusetts Legal Services, providing comprehensive legal services and developing legal outreach programs for immigrant victims of domestic violence. Moghadam, who will work for the American Civil Liberties Union Immigrants’ Rights Project, will provide direct representation and community education for low-wage workers who are denied the opportunity to work by a federal verification program.
