Second Year Student Receives Prestigious ABA Fellowship
Ron Lev, Class of '09, has received the Janet D. Steiger Fellowship from the American Bar Association to work in the Washington State Attorney General's Office. Mr. Lev was one of 24 students selected for this Fellowship out of 200 applications.
The Janet D. Steiger Fellowship Project provides law students the extraordinary opportunity to work in the in the consumer protection and antitrust departments of state and territorial Offices of Attorneys General throughout the United States, as well as the Georgia Governor’s Office of Consumer Affairs.. The eight-week paid Fellowships were initiated in 2004 by the ABA Section of Antitrust Law, in cooperation with the National Association of Attorneys General (“NAAG”), as a consumer protection outreach initiative to introduce law students to the rewards of legal careers in public service.
The Project is also a tribute to the memory of the late Janet D. Steiger, one of America’s great public servants who, during her remarkable tenure as FTC Chairman, dramatically improved cooperation, communication and coordination between state and federal consumer protection and antitrust enforcement agencies.
