Julia Simon-Mishel Named a Rising Star in Law

Former Skadden Fellow Julia Simon-Mishel ('14) was featured in Billy Penn's annual list of the city's "next great stars in law" ("Who's Next Law: 16 Young Minds Shaping Philly's Legal Landscape," June 29). Julia "represents low-wage workers in unemployment compensation and wage theft cases. Unemployment compensation benefits, she says, are a vital safety net that prevent workers who have lived paycheck-to-paycheck from falling into the cycle of poverty as they search for a new job," Billy Penn said.
