Lawyers Alliance for New York

New York, NY

Faith Alexander has been awarded a fellowship to work with Lawyers Alliance for New York as a staff attorney in the organization’s economic development practice. Pricked by the pervasive poverty that plagued her hometown of the Bronx, New York, Faith worked with a Bronx nonprofit on various economic development projects prior to coming to law school. There, the most meaningful projects she completed related to expanding the membership of the nonprofit’s low-income federal credit union and supporting the nonprofit’s community development corporation in an affordable housing transaction. While at HLS, Faith was involved in the Harvard Transactional Law Clinics, the Community Enterprise Project, the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review, and the Harvard Black Law Students Association. She has completed summer internships in the Policy and Community Development/Civil Action Practices of The Bronx Defenders and Allen & Overy LLP in New York City.
