Nathan Wagner and Zachariah Germaniuk, both 2Ls, accepted appointments this week as Fellows in the Urban Development Law Clinic. These are two new fellowships being added to the six already in effect for this year. The fellowships provide a stipend of $2,400 for the Spring and Fall semesters and $2,000 for the Summer semester.
Nathan and Zach will be joining Fellows, Sung Kim and Zac Oakes, assigned to the Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization where they are working on acquisitions and other real property transactions, usually involving housing with special title problems. Other Fellows, Sunny Nixon and Robert Hern, are in a program that provides legal counsel and assistance on toxic title problems to defendants in pending cases in the Cleveland Housing Court. Douglas Sawyer and Michael Tangry are assigned to the Cuyahoga County Land Reutilization Corporation (land bank).
These new appointments brings the total number of UDLC fellowships to eight. It is expected that grants for all fellowships will be renewed and that recruitment of six fellows for terms ending in May of 2012 will take place in March, 2011.
