ORLANDO, Fla – “Florida A&M University (FAMU) College of Law introduced its new Economic Justice Clinic to the community in a panel discussion on November 16, led by Clinic Director Mark Dorosin. The panel consisted of Economic Justice Fellows Zsa’Queria Martin, Ambree Barnes, and Tamara Gainor, as well as students Brianna Bell and Helin Nagib, who are both enrolled in the Clinic for the spring semester.  

Professor Dorosin explained the genesis of the Clinic and its dual missions to serve small and minority-owned businesses and nonprofits in the community and train the next generation of social justice lawyers.  

“There is great work to be done. The wealth of Black families in America is one-tenth that of white families, said Dorosin.  “There are severe racial disparities in home ownership, student debt burdens, and incomes. Black owned business have less access to loans, and often only available at higher interest rates.” 

During the Economic Justice for All panel, students described their own passion and commitment to these issues, and their experiences doing this work through the Economic Justice Fellowships. The new clinic and the Economic Justice Fellowships were made possible in partnership and with generous support from Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. 

The Economic Justice Clinic officially launches in January 2023.
