September 29, 2020

Six rising 2Ls at NYU School of Law have been selected as the 2020 Paul, Weiss Fellows at the Center for Race, Inequality and the Law. Over the 2020-2021 academic year, the Fellows will work to further the center’s goal of confronting and changing the laws, policies and practices that lead to the oppression and marginalization of people of color.

“The Paul, Weiss Fellows play a key role in all our work,” says Anthony Thompson, founding faculty director of the Center. “They conduct research, write memoranda and briefs, prepare expert testimony on legislation and contribute in many other ways. The Center can accomplish so much more because of the Paul, Weiss Fellows.”

The six Fellows themselves reflect a diverse set of backgrounds and experiences. They come from across the country and had a variety of experiences before becoming law students at NYU School of Law.
