The 2015 Evan Yegelwel Summer Fellowship award permits one UF Law student to participate in a paid Summer Fellowship Program at the Anti-Defamation League, Florida Regional Office in Boca Raton. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is the premier national civil rights organization that fights anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry in the U.S. and abroad, combats international terrorism, probes the roots of hatred, comes to the aid of victims of bigotry, develops educational programs, and serves as a public resource for government, media, law enforcement, all towards the goal of countering and reducing hatred.
A generous gift from UF Law alumnus Evan Yegelwel, who graduated in 1980, has made this Fellowship possible. Mr. Yegelwel is a partner in the Jacksonville, Florida law firm of Terrell Hogan Ellis Yegelwel, P.A.
csrrr_fellows “This past summer I worked on various interesting and innovative projects with ADL. I drafted a legal memorandum about the constitutionality of a possible equal marriage amendment to the Florida Constitution. I also drafted a memorandum examining sex trafficking as an issue of gender discrimination. That memorandum will be published later this year. I handled discrimination complaints from members of the community who had felt their civil rights had been violated. Not only did I get practical legal experience, but I also participated in ADL events such as No Place for Hate, ADL’s campaign to stop bullying in schools.”-Mai Melissa Le, 2012 Fellow
