PRESS RELEASE

Bryan Schwartz Law Hires Jasjit Mundh as a Summer Associate at the Oakland-Based Civil Rights, Employment Law Firm 

June 12, 2020 – Bryan Schwartz Law is pleased to announce that Jasjit Mundh has joined the firm as a Summer Associate. Ms. Mundh, a student at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law, is a recipient of the Employee Justice Summer Clerkship for 2020, from the Foundation for Advocacy Inclusion & Resources (FAIR).

During law school, Jasjit has served as a co-director of the Legal Aid at Work’s student-run Workers’ Rights Clinic, which provides free legal services to low-wage workers in the Bay Area. She was also on the board of the Coalition for Diversity and the Womxn of Color Collective, student organizations dedicated to diversity and inclusion at Berkeley Law. Jasjit is currently an executive editor on California Law Review.

Prior to attending law school, Ms. Mundh worked as support staff at a local elementary school in South San Jose. She also spent time volunteering at a local library, providing tutoring services to improve the literacy skills of children from her community. Before that, Jasjit graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with highest distinction. There, she worked with labor unions and organizations at the Labor Center, completed research regarding self-governance under the guidance of a professor, helped create space for South Asian & Middle Eastern students on Berkeley’s campus, and worked with the Renters’ Legal Assistance, which educates and counsels many low-income East Bay tenants about their rights. During her summers, Jasjit helped register voters and encouraged members of the Sikh community to vote.

Jasjit was born and raised in South San Jose, where she grew up in a low-income, single-parent household after her father passed away from cancer. Her parents immigrated from Punjab, India in 1980s, and many of Jasjit’s community members were Latinx and Vietnamese immigrants. Witnessing her mother and many of her community members face difficulties in their workplace and beyond motivates Jasjit to remain committed to workers’ rights and civil rights. She hopes to use her law degree to uplift the voices of her community members.

Attorney Bryan Schwartz opened the practice in January 2009. Bryan Schwartz Law is dedicated to continuing the struggle for civil rights and equality of employment opportunity and helping Americans from every background to achieve their highest career potential. The firm focuses on individual, class, and collective actions involving discrimination and retaliation, harassment, denied disability accommodations, whistleblower reprisal, wage and hour violations, federal employees’ rights, and severance negotiations.
