3L Carisa Hatfield awarded $2,500 ‘Finding Justice’ scholarship

Laurence M. Katz Professor of Law Jane Murphy sends this news:

Finding Justice, a history of women lawyers in Maryland, was published last spring by GFThompson/University of Virginia Press. The book was edited by the Hon. Lynne Battaglia and co-authored by, among others, me, former UM law Dean Phoebe Haddon and the Hon. Diane Leasure. From the beginning the authors, in collaboration with the Women’s Bar Foundation, agreed that the proceeds from the sale of the book would go toward scholarships for students from both the University of Baltimore School of Law and the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. Working with representatives from the Women’s Bar Association Foundation and UM, Assistant Dean Jill Green and I have developed a process and criteria for selecting each year’s recipient.

I’m happy to announce our 2015 recipient of a $2,500 scholarship is 3L Carisa Hatfield. Hatfield is president of the Women’s Bar Association-UB chapter, secretary of the Students Supporting the Women’s Law Center and a member of the Royal Graham Shannonhouse III Honor Society. She has also been selected as the House of Ruth Venable Fellow (postgraduate fellowship). Please join me in congratulating her.

The 2016 Finding Justice Scholar will be announced at the School of Law’s annual awards ceremony in April.
