William Suggs, a 2L, has been awarded a 10-week summer fellowship by the Peggy Browning Fund. Suggs will work at the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) International Union in Washington, D.C.
Before entering law school, Suggs was a researcher and union organizer with the American Federation of Teachers. At UB, Suggs is a member of the National Lawyers Guild chapter.
Suggs was among 400 applicants for 80 fellowships awarded this year, according to a news release from the Peggy Browning Fund.
