Hanna S. Cohn Equal Justice Fellowship

The Hanna S. Cohn Equal Justice Fellowship will be awarded to a talented, committed law school graduate at the beginning of her or his career in the area of poverty law. All applicants must be in or entering their third year of law school. The Fellow will be placed at the Empire Justice Center in Rochester, NY and will represent low-income clients in complex areas of litigation and other types of advocacy.

The goal of the Fellowship is to increase legal advocacy for Greater Rochester's poor people in high priority areas that are currently under served. In addition, the Fellowship is designed to attract dynamic and talented, new lawyers to the practice of poverty law.
