Minneapolis, MN – In partnership with 3M, the University of St. Thomas School of Law is launching a new fellowship program that will allow a new law graduate to work full time for the school’s award-winning Community Justice Project. The 3M Community Justice Fellowship will give a UST School of Law alumnus the chance to dedicate his or her post-graduate year to bridge-building with community stakeholders and problem-solving in underserved communities. The program has been approved for three years, with one fellow being named each year. “Beginning in the spring of 2016, one third-year law student will be selected to work alongside Professor Nekima Levy-Pounds to further the important work of our Community Justice Project,” Dean Robert Vischer said. “This is a strong affirmation of the Community Justice Project’s relevance and positive impact on our community.”   (Full Article)
