City Bar Justice Center Thanks Our 2013 Summer Interns!

by CBJC Staff August 22, 2013

This summer we hosted seven great law school and college interns for our summer intern program.

Justice Center Summer Interns 2013They are, from left to right, top to bottom: Andrew Lippman, CUNY Law; Faina Savich, Fordham Law; Megan O’Toole, Wake Forest; Ellen Rehnberg, Mt. Holyoke; Jill Westerberg, CUNY Law, Ryan Brachter, University of Oklahoma Law; and Janeen Hall, Brooklyn Law.  Among many other accomplishments, our interns helped carry out our mission of serving low-income New Yorkers by: conducting client intake interviews of refugees, potentially trafficked persons and cancer patients; assisting at legal clinics for veterans, small business owners, those affected by 9/11 and senior citizens; doing intensive legal research and writing; and going off-site to court and settlement conferences. The interns gained exposure to public interest work, various types of civil legal law projects and to the importance of pro bono in closing New York’s justice gap. We also thank Molly Greathead for her hard work during the spring/summer term.  We wish them the best in their school year and for their future law careers!
