Alana Glover, Class of 2020, is one of 10 female law students in the United States who have been selected as Ms. JD Fellows. Ms. JD is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to the success of aspiring and early-career women lawyers. It is also home to the National Women Law Students’ Organization.
Fellows are selected from across the country on the basis of academic achievement, involvement, passion for the legal profession, and commitment to Ms. JD’s mission of improving the experience of women in the legal profession.
The organization invited Glover and the other fellows to attend the America Bar Association’s Annual Meeting in San Francisco this past August, where they were special guests at the Margaret Brent Luncheon honoring outstanding female lawyers.
Glover is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University, where she majored in criminal justice and African American studies, and minored in political science and homeland security. As symposium editor for the UB Law Review, she is a driving force behind the journal’s fall symposium, “400 Years: Slavery and the Criminal Justice System.”
Glover is also a member of the Royal Graham Shannonhouse III Honor Society, the National Mock Trial Team and the Black Law Student Association, and she is a student- attorney in the UB Innocence Project Clinic. She is also the founder of the Baltimore chapter of the National Cervical Cancer Coalition.
