The Justice Center fosters engagement in public interest law, public service, and pro bono activities by recognizing student commitment to using the law to serve others. In spring 2015, the Justice Center will recognize up to six graduating law students. The selection committee will consider students' work in public interest, legal pro bono, government, legislative, and other non-profit sectors, as well as their participation in law school clinical courses, pro bono projects, and student groups.  At least one award will specifically recognize commitment to pro bono activities and at least one award will specifically recognize commitment to government service, in addition to other service.

Application period is now closed. For sample application information about the 2014 awards criteria and application process, see:
