The Section has selected Catherine Martin as its 2017-2019 Christine A. Brunswick Public Service Fellow. During her two-year Fellowship, Catherine will be working with Community Legal Services, Inc., in Philadelphia, PA, to provide legal representation to low-income Philadelphians facing tax foreclosure of their properties.
The Public Service Fellowship program was developed in 2008 to address the need for tax legal assistance, and to foster an interest in tax-related public service among those individuals who participate. In 2013, the Public Service Fellowship was re-named the Christine A. Brunswick Public Service Fellowship in honor of the late Christine A. Brunswick, the Section’s former Executive Director. Christine was a strong proponent of the Tax Section’s role in advancing pro bono and public service and fostering a fair and equitable tax system. Under her leadership, the Section has devoted significant resources to further that goal. ■
