Zeenat Hassan
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.
