Mario Roque is Empire Justice Center's first Cornell Law Frank H.T. Rhodes Public Interest Fellow.  His project will focus on working on school desegregation.

And prior to and while attending Cornell Law School, he served as a case manager at an Immigration Law Firm. While a student at Cornell Law, Mario participated in the Farmworker’s Legal Assistance Clinic, the International Human Rights Clinic and organized and coordinated the Public Interest Academy, a student-led initiative that brings together Cornell alumni and students in order to support and promote public interest legal careers.
