This is the 2020 fellowship description for this mentor organization.

Levy Ratner’s record of successfully representing unions and working people for more than 35 years places the firm at the forefront of the labor side advocacy movement. The firm has 24 lawyers actively engaged in its practice, many of whom have national reputations in the field of labor and employment law and extensive expertise handling complex, precedent-setting cases. The firm is committed to expanding workers’ rights through union organizing, collective bargaining, litigation and the political process.

The law firm represents major international and local unions, and currently serves as general counsel to the largest and fastest-growing local health care union in the country. The firm’s union clients represent workers in a variety of other industries including academia, utilities, textiles, cultural institutions, typography, brewery and postal service. The firm also provides legal counsel and representation to employee benefit funds and to progressive community and political organizations. In addition to institutional clients, the firm handles cases on behalf of individuals and groups of employees, and has worked as cooperating attorneys with the Center for Constitutional Rights and the New York Civil Liberties Union to fight discrimination and other abuses through impact litigation.

We seek a Peggy Browning Fellow with a commitment to workers’ rights issues and/or other progressive causes. This paid fellowship position entails research and writing on a variety of legal topics and offers potential for client contact. Excellent research and writing skills, and an ability to work under short deadlines are essential. 2L applicants only. Minority students are strongly encouraged to apply.

The stipend for this fellowship will be $875/week for students who have completed their second year of law school.
