UM Carey Law student Joshua Lowery will spend 10 weeks this summer in Washington, DC at O'Donoghue & O'Donoghue, LLP working on labor and economic justice issues, thanks to The Peggy Browning Fund, a Philadelphia-based nonprofit organization that supports nearly 70 public interest labor law fellowships nationwide.
Lowery, a third-year evening student, was one of more than 500 applicants for this year’s fellowships. An economist at the Sage Policy Group in Baltimore, he grew up in a labor union family, graduated from Towson University and interned with US Representative Steny Hoyer. He also spent a summer break working alongside members of the IUEC Local 10 constructing the elevators at National Harbor near Washington, DC.
At UM Carey Law, Lowery is vice president of his class in the Student Bar Association. He was also Lieutenant Governor to Coordinate Regional Affairs for Maryland in the ABA Law Student Division’s Third Circuit.
The Peggy Browning Fund was established in memory of Margaret A. Browning, a prominent union-side attorney who was a member of the National Labor Relations Board from 1994 – 1997.
