3L Paul Dimick, Mary Georgevich ’18 Awarded Equal Justice Works Fellowships

3L Paul Dimick and Mary Georgevich ’18 have been awarded prestigious Equal Justice Works Fellowships to provide advocacy and education assistance to immigrants.

Dimick will work with the American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota, where he will represent low-income immigrants in detention. He also plans to develop a Federal Habeas Corpus Manual for other attorneys representing detained non-citizens.

At the Law School, Dimick has been very active with the James H. Binger Center for New Americans. He was part of a three-student team that successfully argued a major immigration issue before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. He also traveled to rural Guatemala to aid immigrants removed from the United States in getting their due process claims heard. Prior to Law School, Dimick served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala.

Georgevich’s fellowship is with the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota, where she will expand the rights of Somali Minnesotans to liberty, due process, and family unity through strategic litigation in immigration and federal courts, and related public education and advocacy.

Georgevich is currently a law clerk for Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Anne K. McKeig. As law student, Georgevich was also deeply involved in clinical work at the James H. Binger Center for New Americans in both her 2L and 3L years.
