Law students Madonna Lebling, Christian Noble and Maya Zegarra shared in the Young Lawyers Section Alex Fee Memorial Award. The three were honored for their work as student volunteers with the Esperanza Center’s Pro Bono Project.

The UB School of Law’s Juvenile Justice Project was part of a larger group that received the Herbert S. Garten Special Project Award, for their efforts to increase awareness and deliver effective counsel to the issue of juveniles serving life sentences in Maryland’s criminal-justice system. The MSBA noted that the group has recruited 50 pro bono attorneys and provided training and support for individuals in the system, since they started work in May 2017.
