Ramis Wadood ’21 Receives Skadden Fellowship
Ramis Wadood ’21 has been awarded a 2021 Skadden Public Interest Fellowship.
The two-year fellowships are given by the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom to a group of young lawyers to pursue the practice of public interest law on a full-time basis.
Wadood will join the ACLU of Michigan in Detroit and will provide direct representation and systemic advocacy to low-income immigrants in Michigan suffering from the financial and emotional consequences of abusive anti-immigrant policing.
Launched in 1988 to commemorate the firm’s 40th anniversary, the Skadden Foundation has funded over 900 public interest fellowships. According to the Foundation, 90 percent of former Fellows remain in public service, and almost all of them continue working on the same issues they addressed in their original Fellowship projects.
