The William Wayne Justice Center at the School of Law has awarded this year’s Law Faculty Post-Graduate Fellowship in Public Interest Law to Aaron Johnson. The fellowship program seeks to create opportunities for outstanding graduating students to work with public interest legal organizations on behalf of underrepresented individuals or groups. Selected by a faculty committee based on his project proposal, Johnson will receive a stipend of $37,000 for one year. The fellowship will help him start a career in public interest law. He will work with the Equal Justice Center, a nonprofit employment justice and civil rights organization in Austin, helping low-income immigrant workers recover unpaid wages. In addition to representing workers, he will develop innovative methods to involve private lawyers in wage recovery for low-income working men and women.
