Peggy Browning Fund Conference – Apply for nomination by Thursday, Sept. 7, 2017

The Peggy Browning Fund’s National Law Students Workers’ Rights Conference takes place October 13-14, 2017 in Linthicum Heights, MD. The University of Texas School of Law may nominate an unlimited number of students to attend the conference. One student, however, will be eligible for conference sponsorship (including on-site meals and lodging expenses) by the Peggy Browning Fund and travel sponsorship by the Career Services Office.

Apply for Nominations and Sponsorship
To be considered for nomination and sponsorship, please submit your resume and a brief essay (no more than two pages) describing why you want to attend the conference to Lawson Konvalinka in the CSO at cso@law.utexas.edu by 5 p.m. on Thursday, September 7, 2017.

The selection committee will consider such factors as your demonstrated interest in either workers’ rights issues or public interest law and whether you have previously attended the conference. If you are selected as a nominee, you will need to partner with the CSO to register for the conference by Friday, September 8, 2017 to be considered for funding. Please note that registration and funding is administered on a first-come, first-served basis.

The CSO will notify nominees about available funds once the nominees are selected. For more information about the conference, visit the Peggy Browning Fund website or contact Lawson Konvalinka at lkonvalinka@law.utexas.edu or 512-232-1157.
