Francis Santos

Francis Santos is the Joseph V. Kaplan Workers’ Rights Fellow at Bryan Schwartz Law. He is the fourth recipient of the Joseph V. Kaplan Workers’ Rights Fellowship, intended to train recent law school graduates dedicated to worker justice.

Mr. Santos received a law degree from the University of California Berkeley, School of Law with Public Interest & Social Justice and International Law certificates. While in law school, Mr. Santos served as the Executive Editor of California Law Review and an Associate Editor for the Berkeley Journal of International Law. He also served as a 2022 Summer Fellow for UC Berkeley’s Human Rights Center.

He was a Racial Justice Fellow at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), where he supported the ACLU’s Racial Justice Program in developing legal cases that challenge occupational licensing regulations, discriminatory educational policies, and minimum wage exclusions. He also worked with the International Human Rights Law Clinic, to support legal advocacy and litigation efforts in challenging life without parole sentences across the country.

Mr. Santos is an international student who was born and raised in the Philippines, and he speaks native Tagalog. He moved to the United States seven years ago in search of a better life for himself and to support his family back home. From his experiences working in this country and back home in the Philippines, Mr. Santos understood all too well how one’s employment dictates how well people can live their lives. Helping individuals resolve these matters favorably can make an enormous difference in a person’s life and Mr. Santos seeks to continue to do that work.
