In this exclusive interview, NewsOne contributing editor Bakari Kitwana spoke with Zenovia N. Evans, JD, who started a hunger strike on August 5th to protest law school transparency. Speaking about developments with the movement to hold law schools accountable to graduates with rising debt and declining job opportunities, she confirms that she ended the strike on Saturday under medical advice—after losing sixteen pounds.
Graduate student protest blogs like Ms. Evans’s unemployedjd.com want law schools to make public salary and employment data of recent graduates. “The strike is over, but the protest continues,” she says.
Zenovia N. Evans, JD is a 2009 graduate of Thomas M. Cooley Law School. She started the blog unemployedjd.com writing under the pseudonym Ethan Haines.
