Daniella Taylor-Smith, a law student at Howard University, has spent her summer combing through pay stubs, job applications and other documents. Thus far, she’s racked up at least 10 3-inch binders — all with purple labels because that’s her favorite color — chock full of discovery for an employment discrimination case.

Taylor-Smith, who has just finished her first year of law school, has been working on a class action against the Federal Aviation Administration for Gebhardt & Associates since mid-May, hence the abundance of binders. Working on a reduced fee, the firm is representing a class of former air traffic controllers who allege that the FAA committed age discrimination when the agency outsourced their jobs.
