Munger Tolles Sponsors Fellowship to Establish First of Its Kind Medical-Legal Partnership

Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP is proud to co-sponsor Equal Justice Works Fellow Bavani Sridhar, who will launch Southern California’s first medical-legal partnership dedicated to serving the Asian and Pacific Islander community.

Hosted by the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, Ms. Sridhar, a graduate of Northeastern University School of Law, will spearhead the launch and implementation of the clinic during her two-year fellowship project.

The medical-legal partnership clinic will be located in Long Beach and will focus on addressing health inequities in the local underserved Asian and Pacific Islander community.

“MTO is proud to continue our long-term partnership with LAFLA and EJW and join with our friends at Amgen to sponsor Bavani Sridhar as an EJW Fellow,” said Partner Laura Smolowe. “We are excited about Bavani’s work serving the API community with the medical-legal partnership project, and we cannot wait to see what she accomplishes.”
