Ole Miss law students Reid Posey and Giselle Rasberry have been selected as Student Fellows for the Rural Summer Legal Corps, a joint program of Equal Justice Works and Legal Services Corporation that provides direct services in underserved rural communities across the United States and its territories.

Student Fellows spend eight to ten weeks during the summer gaining hands-on experience providing direct legal services, engaging in community outreach and education, and building capacity at their host organizations.

During the Rural Summer Legal Corps Fellowship, Reid Posey will be hosted at North Mississippi Rural Legal Services, where he will provide legal services to low-income clients in the areas of foreclosure prevention, consumer protection, family law, social security disability, administrative law, and public housing. Giselle will also be hosted at North Mississippi Rural Legal Services, where she will work in the Low Income Taxpayer Clinic, helping low-income clients in their controversies with the IRS.
