Akin Gump Develops Full-Time Extern Program with Pro Bono Client inMotion
In early August, Akin Gump litigation associate Roxanne Tizravesh of the firm’s New York office became the first Akin Gump attorney to work full-time as an extern at the offices of inMotion, an organization providing free legal services to low-income women in New York City. Tizravesh (and future Akin Gump externs) will work in four-month rotations, providing in-court representation in challenging matters involving, among other issues, divorce, immigration and spousal support.
Akin Gump is a Corporate Partner of inMotion and has provided pro bono and financial support since 2007. Kim Koopersmith, managing partner-United States, serves as the firm’s Corporate Partner representative to inMotion, and counsel Elizabeth Young serves on inMotion’s Junior Advisory Board.
