Ryan Donahue, a 2L at Harvard Law School, made headlines earlier this month when he walked away from a summer associate position at a large New York City law firm in protest of the firm’s work in Russia.

Since then, Donahue began working with a group of students from Harvard, Yale and Stanford, including Yale Law 1L Arjun Malik and Stanford Law 2L Jackie Schaeffer, to continue to pressure law firms to cut ties with Russian clients, he told Law.com on Monday.
