Levy Vinick Burrell Hyams LLP is proud to support the important work of the Foundation for Advocacy Inclusion & Resources. Attorneys at the firm had fun naming and creating the “Rosie the Riveter” custom cocktail for attendees to enjoy as they tried their hand at roulette, poker, and blackjack during FAIR’s annual event. Money raised, including LVBH’s generous sponsorship donation, will fund summer fellowships for law students committed to pursuing careers as workers’ rights attorneys. Levy Vinick Burrell Hyams LLP has hosted summer law clerks every year since the firm was founded, mentoring a diverse, talented stream of law students destined to join the community of plaintiff-side employment lawyers.
FAIR’s mission is to promote diversity within the plaintiffs’ employment bar in California, so the attorneys representing California’s workers are as diverse as those they seek to represent. FAIR also seeks generally to raise public consciousness about worker’s rights and remedies, to provide educational opportunities and programs to individuals who seek to advance the rights of workers, including but not limited to fellowships, internships, and scholarships, and to carry on other educational activities associated with FAIR’s goals.
