Law school students named as John Paul Stevens Fellows
By: Texas Southern University
Five students from TSU’s Thurgood Marshall School of Law have been named John Paul Stevens Foundation 2022 Public Interest Fellows. Adriana Sophia Galindo, 3L; Okoye Latimore, 3L; Miguel Maldonado, 3L; Andaiye McAndrew, 2L; and Shandrea Sellers, 2L join a national cohort of 159 Stevens Fellows.
In 2021, the John Paul Stevens Fellowship Foundation expanded the Justice John Paul Stevens Public Interest Fellowship program in partnership with HBCU law schools. These law schools are among the nation’s most diverse in terms of faculty and students. They are well-known for their commitment to public interest and preparing a diverse group of law students for leadership.
The Paul Stevens Fellows from the HBCUs are committed, talented individuals who are working at a wide range of public interest organizations in both the public and nonprofit sectors this summer, and they join a national cohort of Stevens Fellows. The program provides grants allowing students at participating law schools to work in unpaid public interest law positions during the summer.
