Next Murnaghan Appellate Advocacy Fellow is Selected

The Public Justice Center and the Francis D. Murnaghan, Jr. Appellate Advocacy Fellowship are delighted to announce that the next Murnaghan Fellow has been selected.  Gregory Care will begin his one year fellowship in September 2007 at the Public Justice Center.
 
Gregory is currently clerking for the Honorable Glenn T. Harrell, Jr. on the Maryland Court of Appeals. Unfortunately he cannot participate in the current case on same-sex marriage pending before the Court of Appeals, because of a highly relevant he published: Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Long Overdue: The Evolution of a "Sexual Orientation Blind" Legal System in Maryland and the Recognition of Same Sex Marriage, 35 U.Balt.L.Rev. 73 (2005).  Gregory finished in the top 5% of his class at the University of Baltimore School of Law in 2006 and graduated magna cum laude from Lycoming College in Pennsylvania.  Greg's commitment to public interest work is evident in his activities. He is an instructor at Street Law, Inc., teaching probationary students about their legal rights. While in law school he was a student attorney in the Civil Law Clinic, and did a summer clerkship with the ACLU of Maryland. Prior to law school he worked with the Community Law Center in Baltimore to combat predatory lending practices, and with the Lycoming County, Pennsylvania's Public Defender's Office. He is an avid backpacker, and has led backpacking trips with at-risk and probationary youth for the Lycoming-Clinton Counties Commission for Community Action.
 
We will be honored to have Greg join the PJC and carry on the dream of Judge Murnaghan. Please join me in welcoming him.
