Georgina Wakefield

2010 Public Interest Grant Recipient

Georgina will graduate from UCLA Law in the Spring of 2011 where she is a member of the Epstein Program in Public Interest Law and Policy and the Critical Race Studies specialization. Georgina is committed to a public interest legal career and has tailored her law school experience to achieve this goal. This past summer Georgina was a summer associate at Hadsell Stormer Keeny Richardson & Renick LLP, the premier civil rights and employment law firm, where she worked on a range of important civil rights cases. During the school year, Georgina served as the Co-Chair for OUTlaw, supporting and institutionalizing innovative programs for the LGBT community. Additionally, Georgina volunteers with Public Counsel’s Community Development Program and with the LGL Transgender Legal Clinic. Along with her busy work and volunteer schedule, Georgina maintains a 3.54 GPA and was selected as Articles Editor of the UCLA Law Review. As an attorney, Georgina hopes to find solutions to the failures of the law to produce meaningful change and provide justice for women, LGBT communities, and communities of color.
