2017-2018 George N. Lindsay Fellow Michael Huggins
Working at the Lawyers’ Committee taught me how to become a great advocate for individuals in the community. In support of our efforts to end debtors’ prisons in Arkansas and Oklahoma, I had the opportunity to conduct investigative trips and develop relationships with partners on the ground. There are very few organizations that give legal fellows the substantive experience to travel for litigation and events. I am very grateful that the Lawyers’ Committee has given me the experience of doing work with community members. I hope to develop the skills I gained as a Lindsay Fellow and continue working in criminal justice reform.
