    01.23.19 PipS Fellow Jared Riser ’18 Featured in U.S. News Story about Legal Assistance to Low-income Tenants
    Scales of justice

    Jared Riser ’18 is featured in a Jan. 22 story in U.S. News highlighting the stubbornly high number of eviction cases across the country and the increasing number of cities offering free attorneys to low-income tenants facing eviction as a promising solution. Riser, a Public Interest/Public Service (PipS) Fellow at the Law School who is working with The New York Legal Assistance Group as part of the fellowship program, is  representing Shawn Johnson, a low-income tenant whose story is the focus of the article.

    PipS is a two-year fellowship program in cooperation with government agencies and nonprofit organizations that encompasses students’ last year of law school and first post-graduate year. The mission of PipS is to improve the practical skills of new lawyers while expanding the ability of nonprofit organizations and government agencies to provide legal services. Brooklyn Law School is the first law school on the East Coast to offer this unique program, which launched in Fall 2014.
