Wage Justice Center

Los Angeles, CA

This is the 2023 fellowship description for this mentor organization.

Legal Fellows at the Wage Justice Center will participate in the Center’s efforts to combat wage-theft, which is faced all too often by immigrant and low-wage workers in California. Our work consist of both litigation and non-litigation strategies and the use of commercial debtor-creditor law and corporations law to unwind corporate fraud, enforce wage judgments and dismantle schemes use by businesses to evade liability for wages. We work closely with community and labor organizations seeking to improve working conditions in a variety of low-wage industries. Assignments may incorporate an interplay of litigation, fact investigations and non-litigation strategies.

The Peggy Browning Fellow will receive training on civil litigation, corporate law, judgment enforcement and bankruptcy as it pertains to their assignments.

Spanish, Korean or Mandarin language capacity strongly preferred.

The total ten-week stipend for this fellowship will be $7,000.
