Zeenat Hassan awarded Inaugural Class Fellowship supporting public service
April 17, 2013
This 3L has been awarded the Inaugural Class Fellowship. The Fellowship
is the Class of 2012's gift, created to sponsor a one-year public
interest fellowship of at least $30,000 for a new graduate of UCI Law.
The mission of the Fellowship is to establish a tradition of public
service at UCI Law by assisting one graduate in developing a strong
foundation for a career in public interest law. Hassan’s project is
called the Affordable Housing Advocacy Project, which will be hosted by
the Public Law Center.
It will use a combination of direct services, advocacy, and community
action to address the housing needs of low-income residents. Sitting on
the Inaugural Class Gift Committee that selected the Fellowship winner
were Class of 2012 graduates Denny Chan, Chris Dalbey and Jean Su.
