The G. Rollie White Public Interest Scholar in Residence Program is endowed and supported by a generous gift from the G. Rollie White Trust. The purpose of the program is to bring outstanding legal scholars, practitioners, and advocates from the field of public service to the Law School to foster discussion of issues related to public interest law, to raise the profile of lawyers working in this area, and to encourage students to view public service as an honored and expected part of every legal career.
The inaugural G. Rolllie White Scholar was Kathryn S. Fuller, '76, chair of the Ford Foundation and former president of the World Wildlife Fund, who visited the Law School in March of 2010. The second G. Rollie White Scholar will soon be announced.
The Justice Center thanks the G. Rollie White Trust for the generous gift that created the public interest scholar in residence program.
