Better Prepared Due to Fellowship

Wednesday, August 24th, 2016

Greg Maleska – JD’18, Valparaiso University Law School, Valparaiso, IN
Mason Pesek – JD’18, New York University School of Law
Audrey Winn – JD’18, New York University School of Law

During our Summer Fellowship with the United Steelworkers, Greg, Mason, and I all visited the Braddock Steel Mill, one of the oldest operating mills in Pennsylvania. The mill was incredibly hot-- it's one thing to abstractly know that and another to experience it while wearing full protective gear. It was helpful to see the places and equipment that we write about all the time in our briefs, and ask questions to workers about their day-to- day experiences. We gained a new appreciation for the work of USW union members, and felt like we were better able to advocate for them because of our trip.
