Four students at the University of Texas School of Law have been selected to receive Baron & Budd Public Interest Scholarships for the 2009–2010 academic year. The scholarship provides financial support to students who commit to working three hundred pro bono hours during the school year with a nonprofit organization providing legal services to underserved individuals or communities.
The scholarships provide a $4,500 stipend and are made possible by a generous gift from the Baron & Budd law firm. They are administered by the William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law at the Law School.
