Milwaukee, July 31, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —
Hupy and Abraham, S.C., personal injury law firm, announced that firm president Attorney Michael Hupy has developed a unique long-term fellowship involving Marquette University Law School students. The five-year commitment will support students in the Public Interest Law Society (PILS) and will act as an important resource for the continuity of the fellowship program.
PILS is a student-run organization committed to creating opportunities for students intending to dedicate themselves to providing assistance to those who are traditionally underrepresented in the legal system. The Michael F. Hupy Fellowship will allow one student to be placed at the Milwaukee Justice Center (MJC). Additionally, the fellowship enables students to contribute an entire summer to public interest legal work in local and global communities.
The Milwaukee Justice Center strives to provide legal aid for persons who do not qualify for government-issued services and cannot afford an attorney. The center is a combined partnership between the Milwaukee Bar Association, Marquette University Law School and Milwaukee County.
A principal benefactor of the MJC, Attorney Michael Hupy has said, “The legal profession exists for the benefit of the public. I am very proud of the contributions of the Milwaukee Justice Center volunteers who provide legal services to those who would otherwise not have access to it and am happy to be able to help. I am proud to support these students dedicated to working for the common good.”
Hupy and Abraham, S.C. also partners with several other legal nonprofits that work to provide free and/or low-cost services to those in need.
