Emily Zushi '13, Marcus Tang '14 Win Prestigious Public Interest Fellowships
Two King Hall students, Emily Zushi '13 and Marcus Tang '14, have been named as recipients of prestigious summer public interest law fellowships. Zushi will work with California Indian Legal Services (CILS) as a Legal Aid Association of California 2012 Dan Bradley Fellow, and Tang will work on fair housing legal education in Sacramento with the support of an Asian American Bar Association Student Summer Grant.
Zushi's summer project will help address the problem of fractionated trust land. Her work will involve studying CILS client communities to identify each tribe's specific concerns regarding intestacy, studying tribe probate codes, drafting a model probate code that can be tailored to suit individual tribes' needs, and designing an educational presentation on the material.
Tang, who is working a summer internship with Legal Services of Northern California, will be talking to Asian American and Pacific Islander community groups in Sacramento to determine common issues for tenants and designing an educational presentation on tenants' rights, the eviction process, and other concerns.
