About the Project

The Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project – named in honor of Supreme Court Justices Thurgood Marshall and William J. Brennan, Jr. – is a civic education program in which UNM Law students teach constitutional law to high schools students in traditionally underserved areas or from traditionally underserved communities.

The program enables UNM law students to take ownership over substantive legal material, serve as ambassadors of the law school in area high schools, develop strong academic and mentoring relationships with local high school students and demonstrate the law school’s commitment to service in the community.

The inaugural 2012 Marshall-Brennan fellows were: Amber Fayerberg ('12), Tyler McCormick ('13), Preston Sanchez ('12) and Jacob Vallejos ('14).

The current 2012-13 Marshall-Brennan fellows are: Tracy Goodluck ('14), Tyler McCormick ('13), Jenessa Trillo-Reyes ('14) and Jacob Vallejos ('14).
