168th Commencement: Watch Live
Albany Law School 1L Courtney Trombly has been selected for a prestigious and highly competitive fellowship through the Peggy Browning Fund.
As a Peggy Browning Fellow, Trombly will spend 10 weeks this summer working at New York State United Teachers in Latham, N.Y. Nearly 450 applicants across the country vied to fill 80 available fellowships in public interest labor law.
"Peggy Browning Fellows are distinguished students who have not only excelled in law school but who have also demonstrated their commitment to workers' rights through their previous educational, work, volunteer and personal experiences," the Peggy Browning Fund said in a statement. "Courtney Trombly certainly fits this description."
A native of Broadalbin—a small town in upstate New York—and daughter of a carpenter, Trombly is eager to gain experience in the legal side of labor rights advocacy and hopes to one day work with international labor movements. She is a past president of her undergraduate Amnesty International chapter.

The Peggy Browning Fund is a not for-profit organization established in memory of Margaret A. Browning, a prominent union-side attorney who was a member of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from 1994 until 1997.

These experiences encourage and inspire students to pursue careers in public interest labor law.
