Angelina Jolie announces new Jolie Legal Fellow

That's right. The Jolie Legal Fellowship, created and funded by the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, supports the government of Haiti's ongoing efforts to strengthen the Haitian judicial system in the post-earthquake environment.

SOS Children's Villages, an organization dedicated to providing family-based services for children without parental care, today announced that Nozile, an alum of the SOS Children's Villages in Santo, Haiti, has been selected as the first fellow for the program. Nozile was selected after graduating from the University of Florida's Levin College of Law this past spring.

Jolie Legal Fellows are attorneys who will concentrate on the protection of Haiti's most vulnerable children in the judicial system by serving as special assistants to key officials in the government of Haiti. Nozile leaves for Haiti later this month to begin her work.
