On Friday, August 4th, the Klein Hornig Boston office hosted fellows from the David S. Nelson Fellowship program. The program, named in honor of the first African-American federal judge for the District of Massachusetts, is organized each summer by the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts and helps to teach Boston, Springfield and Worcester area public high school students about the judicial system and legal community. All of the Nelson Fellows are assigned to a district or magistrate judge, working in chambers, attending trials and assisting with general office operations and court management. During their intensive summer, the Nelson Fellows also take structured classes, meet community leaders, visit local colleges and participate in a culminating mock trial.
Associate Taisha Sturdivant participated in this fellowship in 2005 and returned to the program as coordinator for two summers while in college.
