Judge William H. Fuld Workers’ Rights Advocacy Scholarship

Thomas Correia Kaplan, University of Washington School of Law

Thomas is a second-year law student who takes a hands-on approach to learning and engaging in labor law. Over seven years of cultivating relationships with Washington’s groundbreaking farmworker union leaders, he has learned that change is possible when workers lead. Thomas has spent the past year working in labor law, conducting immigration-related research at the University of Washington and assisting in union-organizing efforts across Washington State. Believing that labor, immigration, criminal justice, human rights, and international trade and development are inextricably linked, he seeks to integrate aspects of each into his studies and his future career as a lawyer. Thomas would like to express his gratitude to working people everywhere who fight for their rights and for the betterment of society – it is because of their efforts and movements that he was able to find his calling in public-interest law.
