Equal Justice Works Announces 2019–2021 National Advisory Committee Members

/ Press Release

Equal Justice Works, the nation’s largest facilitator of opportunities in public interest law, today announced the newest members of its National Advisory Committee.

Formed in 2003, the National Advisory Committee (NAC) is a diverse group of eight law students and eight law school professionals who serve as Equal Justice Works ambassadors within the law school and legal services communities. NAC members extend the reach of Equal Justice Works initiatives by providing leadership, feedback, and outreach assistance to support the organization’s mission of helping law students transform their passion for public service into a lifelong commitment to equal justice.

“We are over the moon to announce our 2019-2021 National Advisory Committee members,” says Aoife Delargy Lowe, director of law school engagement and advocacy at Equal Justice Works. “These outstanding law students and exceptional law school professionals provide Equal Justice Works with strategic guidance and a unique and important perspective on what’s happening on law school campuses across the nation.”

NAC members serve two-year staggered terms—this year, four students and five law school professionals will join the Committee to replace members who have completed their terms of service. The newest members of the 2019-2021 National Advisory Committee include:

Students:

  • Kaile Bennett, Stetson University College of Law
  • Erica Brant, Roger Williams University School of Law
  • Chantel Matikke, Lincoln Memorial University, Duncan School of Law
  • Brittany Urness, Brigham Young University, J. Reuben Clark Law School

Law School Professionals:

  • Michelle Condon, Charleston School of Law

  • Claire O’Brien, Washington University in Saint Louis School of Law

  • Gregory Zlotnick, St. Mary’s University School of Law

The full list of NAC members is available here.

All members will meet later this summer in Washington, D.C., for a strategy session on how best to expand access and knowledge of public interest law in their respective regions.
