Luke Sándor

Legal Fellow

Luke Sándor is a legal fellow on the juvenile justice team. His work involves challenging fines and fees in the juvenile court system and working to dismantle the school to prison pipeline. Sándor graduated from Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in 2021. During law school, Sándor advocated for incarcerated transgender women in Illinois prisons seeking gender-affirming care while interning at the MacArthur Justice Center, challenged prison conditions in Alabama while interning at the Southern Center for Human Rights, and supported grassroots, youth-led abolitionist organizations with litigation and policy advocacy through Northwestern’s Community Justice and Civil Rights Clinic. Prior to law school, Sándor worked with long-term foster youth transitioning to independence in Asheville, NC and received his Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology from Florida State University. Sándor believes in advocacy strategies that center and amplify the voices of impacted people while building power in impacted communities towards the abolition of the prison industrial complex.
