As part of a law school fellowship program at American University’s Washington College of Law, recent graduate Malika Noel is serving in the Knoxville office of Legal Aid of East Tennessee for one year. “When I heard about the fellowship opportunity, I immediately knew that I wanted to do legal aid work,” Noel said. “It takes only one day in court to see that lower-income Americans are grossly under-represented in our legal system…Everyone deserves to be treated with dignity, and everyone deserves a meaningful chance at justice. Legal aid attorneys are on the front lines of making sure that happens, and I’m thrilled to be a part of that.” Read more about Noel’s background in this release from Legal Aid.
