Law students selected for Public Interest Law Fellowships

Seven Wayne State University Law School students are gaining experience and serving a variety of agencies this summer, thanks to the support of the 2016 Public Interest Law Fellowships.

The 2016 fellowship winners and their organizations are:

• David Adgate of Ann Arbor, rising third-year student – Federal Defender Office.

• Hassan Bazzi of Dearborn, rising second-year student – Great Lakes Environmental Law Center.

• Lance Bruck of Sterling Heights, rising third-year student – United Community Housing Coalition.

• Hannah Fielstra of Ferndale, rising third-year student – Michigan State Appellate Defender Office.

• Holland Locklear of Clinton Township, rising third-year student – American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan.

• Marie Reimers of Detroit, rising second-year student – The Family Law Project.

• Madeline Sinkovich of Novi, rising second-year student – Legal Services of Eastern Michigan.

Wayne Law created the fellowships in 2009 to give students opportunities to gain practical experience in public interest law before graduation, ease student financial stresses and offer much-needed assistance to organizations providing legal services to underserved constituencies. Fellowship recipients are selected each year by a committee of Wayne Law faculty members, staff and alumni.
