PHILADELPHIA, PA - The Peggy Browning Fund has awarded a 10-week summer fellowship to Amanda Bundick, a second year student at University of Pittsburgh School of Law. Ms. Bundick will spend the fellowship working at United Steelworkers in Pittsburgh, PA. The application process is highly competitive, and the award was based on her outstanding qualifications.

In 2012 The Peggy Browning Fund will support nearly 70 public interest labor law fellowships nationwide. With more than 500 applicants from 125 participating law schools, securing a Peggy Browning Fellowship is not an easy task. Peggy Browning Fellows are distinguished students who have not only excelled in law school but who have also demonstrated their commitment to workers’ rights through their previous educational, work, volunteer and personal experiences. Amanda Bundick is no exception.

After graduating from Washington & Jefferson College in 2010 with a B.A. in English, Political Science and a concentration in Professional Writing, Amanda enrolled in the program at Pitt Law with the aim of being a union-side labor and employment lawyer. She is now the President of the Pitt Law chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, and is studying labor, employment, and everything else she can to make her into the best possible advocate for working people. Amanda believes very strongly in the strength people possess in numbers and in fighting for the underdog.

The Peggy Browning Fund is a not for-profit organization established in memory of Margaret A. Browning, a prominent union-side attorney who was a Member of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from 1994 until 1997. Peggy Browning Fellowships provide law students with unique, diverse and challenging work experiences fighting for social and economic justice. These experiences encourage and inspire students to pursue careers in public interest labor law.
