Warren Buff, a 2021 graduate of W&L Law, has been awarded a prestigious post-graduate fellowship in housing justice through Equal Justice Works (EJW), the nation’s largest facilitator of opportunities in public interest law.

Buff recently completed a year-long a clerkship with the 26th Judicial Circuit of Virginia. He begins his fellowship in September.

As the Housing Justice Fellow, Buff will advocate for tenants’ rights in Prince George’s County, Maryland for the next two years with a host organization, Community Legal Services of Prince George’s County. The fellowship will involve training both with the host organization and Equal Justice Works.

“This will be a great way to follow up my clerkship and will have me on my feet in court every week, building on the skills I developed in law school with the Community Legal Practice Center,” said Buff.

EJW sponsors roughly one hundred post-graduate fellowships each year, and Buff is only the second W&L graduate to receive one. The first was Susan Saba Roinick ‘06L, who served in an AmeriCorps Fellows program in Baton Rouge.
