Prizes for Study of Law: Application Deadline April 12


The Barbara Jordan Prize for the Study of Law or Public Policy was established to encourage African-American women to undertake careers in law and public policy. Students and alumnae who will attend law school or a graduate program in public policy are eligible to apply.

The David Burres Memorial Law Prize is awarded to a senior or an alumna who has been accepted to law school, with preference to those aspiring to practice law in the public interest. Need is a factor, but the prize is not restricted to students on aid.

Application materials are due in the Dean of the College Office on April 12. Go to http://www.smith.edu/prizes for information about this and other prizes.
