Fellows

Outstanding law graduates with a passion for public service provide a voice for in-need Ohioans through fellowships sponsored by the Ohio Legal Assistance Foundation. The fellowships focus on urgent issues facing individuals and families throughout Ohio. For almost two decades, the fellows have delivered critically needed civil legal aid to sustain housing and prevent homelessness, to keep kids healthy and in school, to serve Ohio’s veterans and to uplift communities.
