Six students at the University of Texas School of Law have been selected as the 2013 Whitehurst Public Interest Summer Fellows. The fellowships are made possible by a gift from Bill, ’70, and Stephanie Whitehurst, and are administered by the William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law at the Law School. The fellowships are awarded annually to outstanding students between their second and third years of law school to support their summer public interest work.
To honor our scholarship donors and recipients, the Law School hosts an annual event at which our students, and those whose charitable giving has helped them, can become acquainted. This year’s Scholarship and Fellowship Reception was held on January 26, 2012.
