These eight law students were selected by the Equal Justice Works National Advisory Committee for providing outstanding service through law clinics, volunteer work, internships, extracurricular projects, and other initiatives. These award winners will receive a commemorative plaque and a monetary reward.
“I have and will continue to devote my life to public service and the advancement of others,” said Aranda Stathers, a second-year law student at Pennsylvania State University Dickinson Law. “Life has afforded me many opportunities to travel and advance my education. I believe it is my duty to leverage my privilege to benefit others, and I will continue to do so long after I graduate from law school.”
