Coffey Awarded Peggy Browning Fellowship
The Peggy Browning Fund has awarded a 10-week summer fellowship to Alyssa B. Coffey, a second year student at George Mason School of Law. Alyssa will spend the fellowship working at Federal Mine Safety & Health Review Commission Office of the Commissioners and Office of the General Counsel in Washington, DC.
In 2014, the Peggy Browning Fund will support nearly 70 public interest labor law fellowships nationwide. With hundreds of applicants from over 140 participating law schools, securing a Peggy Browning Fellowship is not an easy task. Peggy Browning Fellows are distinguished students who have not only excelled in law school but who have also demonstrated their commitment to workers’ rights through their previous educational, work, volunteer and personal experiences.
The Peggy Browning Fund is a not for-profit organization established in memory of Margaret A. Browning, a prominent union-side attorney who was a member of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from 1994 until 1997. Peggy Browning Fellowships provide law students with unique, diverse and challenging work experiences fighting for social and economic justice. These experiences encourage and inspire students to pursue careers in public interest labor law.
