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 hope to continue to support people in my community wherever I live,” said 2023 Regional Public Interest Award Winner DaJonna Richardson. “Information is power and a significant part of public service. Community engagement projects are a compass toward a better society. Whether someone is a first-generation attorney or identifies with a community or culture underrepresented in our profession, I hope to serve as a reminder that they are not alone in their endeavors.”
