The Section of Taxation is pleased to announce the 2019-2021 Christine A. Brunswick Public Service Fellowship class.
- Evan Phoenix will work with the tax clinic at Bet Tzedek Legal Services in Los Angeles on a project aimed at assisting service members and reducing barriers for ESL taxpayers.
- Andre Robinson will work with the Low-Income Tax Clinic at Southeast Louisiana Legal Services in New Orleans, Louisiana to provide education and tax services to taxpayers returning to society after being incarcerated and micro and small businesses owners.
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 devoted significant resources to further that goal. The Fellowship is funded by the Tax Assistance Public Service (TAPS) endowment fund. ■
