In a story on "Why Shouldn't We Pay Student-Athletes?" Professor Ekow Yankah tells NPR's WABE that "the current system is unfair and rife with exploitation, but paying college athletes would essentially just entrench that arrangement."
Four Cardozo students have been selected for 2018 Immigrant Justice Corps fellowships, the country's first fellowship program wholly dedicated to meeting immigrants' needs for high-quality legal assistance. The program was conceived by Robert A. Katzmann, Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and incubated by The Robin Hood Foundation in 2013.
Javeria Ahmed, Emily Echeverria, Lorena Espino-Piepp and Elizabeth Wu, all 3L students, were selected for the fellowships along with 21 students from law schools around the country. The fellows will serve for two years in and around New York City – including the lower Hudson Valley, upstate New York, Long Island, and northern New Jersey – as well as in New Haven, Connecticut, San Antonio, Texas, Miami, Florida and Baltimore, Maryland.
