Focus is on eliminating systemic racism in legal systems 

ORLANDO, Fla – Two Florida A&M University (FAMU) College of Law students are recipients of the LexisNexis Fellowship. The third-year law students selected for this opportunity Nicolle Londoño-Rosado and Amari Roberts.  

“I am excited about being named a LexisNexis Fellow,” said Londoño-Rosado. “I want to be a lawyer because I’ve seen first-hand how inadequate legal representation can cause severe emotional and physical injustice. I want to make a difference by providing the legal representation my family was deprived of when they needed help.”  

The LexisNexis Fellowship focuses on eliminating systemic racism in the legal system. Each Fellow has been awarded $10,000 and is spending nine months engaging in a unique experience designed to accelerate their career, develop their leadership skills, and create opportunities to make a difference.   

“It’s an honor to be selected as a LexisNexis Fellow,” said Roberts. “This opportunity allows me to gain hands-on experience as I work with major players in the fight for equality under the law.”                                               

According to LexisNexis, the unique Fellowship program was launched in 2021 by the African Ancestry Network and LexisNexis Rule of Law Foundation as a part of LexisNexis’ commitment to eliminate systemic racism in legal systems and build a culture of inclusion and diversity at the company. The program was created in partnership with the Historically Black Colleges and Universities Law School Consortium, and this year’s 18 exceptional fellows were selected from a large and competitive applicant pool representing all six HBCU law schools.
