Howard Law Alumna Lands Prestigious Post-Graduate Legal Fellowship

Gabriela Sevilla (J.D. ’19) is a recipient of the 2019 Equal Justice Works Fellowship, one of the most prestigious and competitive post-graduate legal fellowships in the country.

Each year, Equal Justice Works selects a class of passionate public service leaders who have designed two-year projects in partnership with legal services organizations that help build sustainable solutions in the communities where they serve. The projects are funded by the generous support of law firms, corporations, foundations, and individuals. This year, 76 new lawyers were selected from over 450 applications, with Sevilla being one of them!

Sevilla will establish a Medical Legal Partnership between her host organization, the Homeless Persons Representation Project, and Health Care for the Homeless to promote economic stability and help end homelessness in Baltimore. She is sponsored by Pfizer, Inc.

“I am passionate about this issue because I know what it is like to not have a place to call home, and I see myself when I serve my clients,” Sevilla said.
