CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR PEGGY BROWNING FELLOWS!
Dea Franck and Kim Carter will represent Thomas Jefferson School of Law at The Peggy Browning Fund’s Twelfth Annual National Law Students Workers’ Rights Conference in Silver Spring, Maryland (outside of Washington, D.C.) in October 2010. Both students exemplify a strong commitment to public interest law and workplace justice, and will join other conference participants from law schools across the country.
The Peggy Browning Fund is a nonprofit organization named after a prominent labor attorney and vigorous supporter of workers’ rights. The keynote speaker at this year’s conference is Wilma B. Liebman, who was designated as Chairperson of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) by President Obama.
Dea Franck, who attended the event in 2009, applied for and was selected as a 2010 Peggy Browning Summer Fellow at the NLRB/Judge’s Division in San Francisco. Kim Carter is currently serving as a 2010 Diversity Fellow at the law firm of Carlton DiSante & Freudenberger through the San Diego County Bar Association/ACC’s Diversity Fellowship Program.
“I am thrilled to have been chosen to attend the Peggy Browning Fund Workers' Rights Conference,” says Kim Carter. “I hope to gain a greater insight into the employment and labor issues that are emerging, especially in light of the current economic downfall. And of course, I am excited about the national networking opportunity among fellow law students and legal professionals.”
