University of Texas – Justice Center Announces Frank Douglass Public Interest Summer Fellowships

Four University of Texas School of Law students have been selected as the 2009 Frank Douglass Public Interest Summer Fellows. Each fellow will receive a $5,000 stipend and will work for at least ten weeks with a non-profit legal organization in Texas.

The fellowships are supported by a gift from Austin law firm Scott, Douglass & McConnico, L.L.P. in memory of Frank Douglass, ’58.

“Frank was passionate about three things: the practice of law and the men and women he worked with; helping law students; and ensuring legal services were available to those who could not afford them,” Scott, Douglass & McConnico partner Becky Miller said.
