Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie created the Jolie-Pitt Foundation in 2006 which, among many other endeavors, created The Jolie Legal Fellowship, which supports the Government of Haiti's ongoing efforts to strengthen the Haitian judicial system in the challenging post-earthquake environment.
Angelina and SOS Children's Villages, a global organization dedicated to providing family-based services for children without parental care, today announced that Nathalie Nozile has been selected as the first Jolie Legal Fellow.
Jolie said, "I am thrilled that Nathalie Nozile will be our first legal fellow in Haiti -- where the need to enhance child protection is so great," adding, "Nathalie is a force. Just wait and see. She will be doing many great things. She represents the best of Haiti. She is an extraordinary example. I am proud to know her and extremely grateful to have the opportunity to work with her."
The 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 Government of Haiti officials.
Ms. Nozile graduated from the University of Florida's Levin College of Law this past spring and will leave for Haiti this month to begin her work there.
