The New England First Amendment Coalition is pleased to announce Tierney Gilmore, a student at New England Law | Boston, as a summer fellow.

Gilmore, a rising second-year law student, will be assisting in a variety of projects and initiatives, including efforts to increase transparency within law enforcement agencies throughout the region.

“We’re very excited to have Tierney on board this summer,” said Justin Silverman, NEFAC’s executive director. “Many thanks to New England Law | Boston for again inviting NEFAC to join its fellowship program.”
