Robert Alexander, ’16, has been chosen to receive a two-year Equal Justice Works Post Graduate Fellowship.
The fellowship will support Alexander’s work in Swords to Plowshares, a project he created to design legal services for LGBTQ veterans. Based in the San Francisco area, the project will include data collection, tailoring of legal services, coordination with the Veterans’ Administration and supporting the community of LGBTQ veterans.
Equal Justice Post Graduate Fellowships support new public interest positions for lawyers who are committed to developing and leading innovative social justice projects.
A retired Air Force lieutenant colonel, Alexander previously clerked for Judge Mary C. Jacobson of the Superior Court of New Jersey and served as a contributor at large to the American Bar Association Commission on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity. He received the American Law Institute-Continuing Legal Education Scholarship and Leadership Award upon his graduation from law school.
Alexander’s fellowship is being sponsored by Greenberg Traurig, a global firm with offices in Philadelphia, San Francisco and 36 other cities.
