Meet the 2023 Max Berger ’71 Public Interest/Public Service Fellows
Members of this year’s class will focus on issues including environmental human rights, employment law and workers’ rights, public defense, and immigration reform.
The Max Berger ’71 Public Interest/Public Service Fellows Program, now in its fifth year, provides resources and opportunities tailored to students who plan to pursue careers in public interest, human rights, and government. Over the course of their Law School experience, these members of the Class of 2026 will develop their knowledge, gain experience, and hone legal skills through professional development workshops, opportunities to meet with mentors in their field of interest, and attending events. They will join a network of students, alumni, faculty, and practitioners who are social justice leaders.
“The one-on-one support that the program offers was essential to my continuing on the path to a public interest career,” says Raisa Elhadi ’22. “The individualized advising was tailored to my passions and experiences and helped me secure my dream position as a human rights lawyer.”
