USF Law Students Serve Local Communities

June 28, 2010

Ten University of San Francisco law students were selected from more than 1,500 applicants to participate in the 2010 Equal Justice Works Summer Corps program. USF has the highest number of participating students of all California law schools.

“Summer Corps members will provide critically needed legal assistance,” AmeriCorps Program Manager Martin Costello said. “In addition, Summer Corps members gain first-hand experience and legal skills in areas such as client intake, individual representation, research, and writing.

The students will work for nonprofit public interest organizations to provide legal assistance to low-income and underserved communities. Participants are engaged in a broad range of social justice issues, including civil rights, community economic development, disability rights, housing, domestic violence, education, and public benefits, Costello said.

USF School of Law participants and the organizations they will serve include Elizabeth Aleman 2L, Legal Aid of Marin County; Liat Blum 2L, Bay Area Legal Aid in Richmond; Nora Devine 2L, Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund in Berkeley; Dana Isaac 3L, Bay Area Legal Aid in San Francisco; Kaitlyn Johnson 2L, HomeBase in San Francisco; Charles Millioen 3L, San Francisco Office of the Public Defender; Yolanda Peneda 4L, Children's Law Center of Los Angeles; Laura Schniedwind 3L, East Bay Community Law Center; Jamal Shakur 3L, Bay Area Legal Aid in Oakland; and Michelle Ternus-Nugent 3L, East Bay Children's Law Offices.

Summer Corps members receive a $1,000 education voucher upon completion of their service.
