Lisa Eisenberg, a 1L, will spend the summer working with a union that represents sheet metal workers in Pennsylvania and New Jersey as a Peggy Browning Fund fellow.
Eisenberg is among fewer than 80 law students chosen for the prestigious program this year. The Peggy Browning Fund received more than 400 applications from students at 150 law schools.
For 10 weeks, Eisenberg will work with Sheet Metal Workers Local Union No. 19, which represents 4,300 tradesmen and women.
Eisenberg was selected for her commitment to workers' rights, as demonstrated through her work as a finance assistant for the former U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz, D-PA , as committeeperson for the Philadelphia Democratic City Committee and her activism with College Democrats at Temple University, where she earned her bachelor's degree in political science.
The Peggy Browning Fund is a non-profit organization established in memory of Margaret A. Browning, a prominent union-side attorney who served on the National Labor Relations Board from 1994 to 1997.
