IABA-Chicago Public Interest Fellowship Winner

July 31, 2013

After a rigorous selection process, IABA-Chicago is pleased to announce that Kinza Khan, a 3rd year law student at the DePaul University College of Law, is the winner of this year’s annual IABA public interest fellowship.

Kinza, who is also the recipient of the Governor Edward Coles Fellowship, is working on a wide range of public interest issues over the summer, ranging from civil rights and employment discrimination to immigration. Her responsibilities will include bill review, administrative rulemaking, and other legislative matters, as well as providing assistance to ALJs at the Illinois Human Rights Commission on individual cases. Additionally, through the DePaul U visa clinic, she will assist undocumented victims of crime pursuing lawful immigration status through the U nonimmigrant visa provisions.

Kinza will also volunteer at the IABA pro bono clinic, a monthly legal clinic providing free and sliding scale legal services to income-eligible members of the community at the Indo-American Center of Chicago.

The IABA public interest fellowship is an annual financial award given to a law student who best exemplifies the motto of public service through their work while in law school. Please join us in congratulating Ms. Khan on her achievement.
