Fried Frank was a proud sponsor of the 2016 Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF) Award's Gala held Tuesday, June 7, at The Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. The event highlighted MALDEF's commitment and dedicated public service to the community and recognized individuals, corporations and law firms who have been instrumental in advancing justice for Latinos.
Each year, Fried Frank and MALDEF partner to sponsor the Fried Frank Civil Rights Fellowship, a program that gives an entry-level lawyer the opportunity to spend two years as a Fried Frank litigator and then two years as a staff attorney with MALDEF. At the end of their four-year commitment, successful Fellows are encouraged to interview to return to Fried Frank or continue working at MALDEF.
