5.4.15 — Trevor Maloney '16 has been selected as a John J. Curtin Jr. Justice Fund Legal Fellow. The Fund is managed jointly by the ABA Commission on Homelessness and Poverty and the Standing Committee on Legal Aid and Indigent Defendants, with the goal of encouraging careers that further social justice.

Trevor will spend the summer at the Roxbury Defenders Unit in Roxbury, MA - a perfect fit given his interest in criminal defense and how the criminal justice system intersects with current racial and economic power structures. He was selected from more than fifty applicants because of his commitment to public interest work and the quality of the program at RDU.

"Receiving this fellowship is very encouraging, especially since it memorializes Mr. Curtin," said Trevor. "At Northeastern, I've had several great opportunities to explore my interest in criminal defense, and this fellowship will help me to continue to do so. The way I see it, working on behalf of those the state accuses of a crime is an honor." (more)
