Six students at the University of Texas School of Law have been selected as the 2011 Whitehurst Public Interest Summer Fellows. The fellowships are made possible by a gift from Bill, ’70, and Stephanie Whitehurst, and are administered by the Law School’s William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law. The fellowships are awarded annually to outstanding students between their second and third years of law school to support their summer public interest work.
The Whitehursts named the fellowships for lawyers they admire in hopes that the recipients will be inspired by the honorees’ work in the public interest. The Whitehursts have named the summer 2011 fellowships in honor of lawyers Michael S. Greco, Dicky Grigg, Jonathan Ross, Broadus Spivey, and Victoria Touchet, as well as Julie Clark, a non-lawyer who is vice president of strategic alliances for the National Legal Aid and Defender Association.
