2021-22 President of the Texas A&M
Public Interest Law Fellowship

It is an incredible honor to serve the Texas A&M Public Interest Law Fellowship for the 2021-22 class. Despite the difficulties of 2020, it was never a question that the Law Fellowship would pursue its mission to the end. It was thanks to the amazing efforts of last year’s fellows, and the remarkable generosity of our donors, that the Fellowship was able to award more than $50,000 in fellowships to 20 deserving law Fellows this past summer.

For students hoping to give back to the community as future Aggie lawyers, public-interest based internships are highly valuable teaching and mentorship opportunities. However, these organizations rarely have the resources to pay interns. The Law Fellowship fills this need by providing stipends to a select number of deserving law students to cover costs of living and ease the burden of working without pay for a summer during law school. 

Beyond this act of service during the summer, Law Fellows commit to working throughout the year to raise funds for the following year’s Fellows. This exceptional demonstration of selfless service, leadership, and loyalty in pursuit of excellence is what makes the fellowship a perfect example of Texas A&M University’s core values. 

Our donors make our fellowship and thousands of hours of service possible. They are community leaders, family and friends of fellows, business owners and professionals, truly anyone that believes and supports the Law Fellowship’s mission and goals. We hope you will take some time to learn more about our fundraising efforts and give your support by donating, sharing, and participating. Your contribution will help Law Fellows use their skills to increase access to legal services while pursuing their passions. 

Thank you for taking the time to learn about the Law Fellowship. It is a privilege to be a part of this organization, and with an amazing class of fellows and the continued support of our extraordinary donors, I am optimistic that we will fulfill the Law Fellowship’s tradition another year.

We hope to count on your support!
