REQUEST INFORMATION

Hundreds of us law students apply each year for the prestigious Skadden fellowships, only 30 make the cut. In the past five years, MSU law has produced a trifecta: Sarah Warpinski Ladd ‘13, Erin Hankins Diaz ‘15, and Monica Macias Andrade ‘17.

The Skadden Fellowships were created in 1988 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom. The fellowships provide funding for graduating law students who want to commit their careers to serving the poor the chance to pursue public interest work for the first two years of their careers.


Andrade

Andrade works with immigrants. Once an undocumented immigrant and now a US citizen, this fall she will start with the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan in Flint, advocating for immigrant families harmed by the toxic water crisis.


Diaz

Diaz works at Michigan Protection and Advocacy Services, ensuring the educational needs of children with disabilities from low-income families in Detroit are met. She plans to continue in this field and to run for public office.


Ladd

Ladd studied law with the goal of advocating for victims and supporters of human trafficking. She obtained a Skadden Fellowship Writing Stipend, in part, to join the Advocates for Human Rights in writing their report on labor trafficking. She subsequently obtained a Flom Incubator Grant from the Skadden Fellowship Foundation to launch the Trafficking Integration Initiative as Minneapolis-based organization.
