Dickinson Law students selected as IOLTA summer fellows

May 09, 2016

CARLISLE, Pa. — Penn State’s Dickinson Law is committed to providing students with many opportunities to participate in public interest lawyering during their law school careers. They serve the public and advocate for underrepresented community members with limited financial means through transactional work, policy making, and administrative and judicial proceedings. Students work for international, national, or regional nonprofit organizations, or for government entities at the federal, state, or local levels. By increasing access to justice for those who can’t afford representation, students not only provide a valuable public service, but also gain a rewarding opportunity to give back to the community.

Several types of summer fellowships are available to students participating in public interest work, including those funded by Interest On Lawyer Trust Accounts (IOLTA). The following students from Dickinson Law were selected as 2016 IOLTA summer fellows:

Christopher Harris — MidPenn Legal Services, Lancaster
