Two Maine Law Students Named Equal Justice Works Summer Corps Members

Two Maine Law students, both from the Class of 2013, have been named Equal Justice Works “Summer Corps” members this year. Through the Summer Corps—a partnership between Equal Justice Works and AmeriCorps—several hundred law students from around the country serve at nonprofit legal aid organizations every summer. The Maine Law students are Shawn Walsh, who is spending the summer with the Maine Volunteer Lawyers Project in Portland, and Sandy Nessin, who is interning with the Maine Medical Association in Augusta.

Each Summer Corps member receives an AmeriCorps education cash award upon completion of a minimum of 300 hours of summer service at a nonprofit public interest organization.

Equal Justice Works is nonprofit organization based in Washington, DC that promotes careers in public service for lawyers. It works with law schools, law firms, and other legal employers to help law students and lawyers acquire the training and skills to provide legal assistance to poor and other vulnerable populations. Besides its Summer Corps program, Equal Justice Works also sponsors post-graduate legal fellowship programs, hosts an annual conference and public interest career fair, and offers a variety of other resources.
