Justice Center Names 2014-15 Public Service Scholars
Four students have been selected to serve as Public Service Scholars with the William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law for the 2014-15 academic year.
The University of Texas School of Law awards scholarships each year to a group of outstanding students who demonstrate a commitment to studying, promoting and working in public service. The scholars receive a scholarship and work closely with the Justice Center on public service initiatives.
“We look forward to working with these outstanding student leaders and are impressed by their dedication to serving the public,” said Eden Harrington, director of the Justice Center.
