On September 7th, CAL had the pleasure of welcoming Sam Ackerberg, Siobhan Atkins, Kate Park, Anokhi Shah, Sam Steinbock-Pratt, and Christina Wong as new staff attorney fellows. They are joining David Bernstein, Megan Byrne, and Molly Schindler to form our 2016 class of attorneys. In addition, Alexandra Ferlise will be spending her third year at Brooklyn Law School with CAL as a PIPS fellow: she will be “embedded” at Bronx Defenders working on our IFP project. Lastly, Blythe Hawthorne-Loizeaux will be taking time off from NYU Law School to assist CAL part-time in client interviewing.
