Law grads head to Court
The University of La Verne will be sponsoring a group of ULV Law School graduates who will be given a once in a lifetime opportunity as they are sworn in to practice law before the highest court in the nation, the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C., on May 24.
Robert Ackrich, professor of law, believes it to be the ultimate professional experience for a lawyer to stand in front of the justices of the United States Supreme Court.
An awards ceremony and senior project presentation for the departments of sociology and anthropology took place on Tuesday.
Scholarships were awarded to students from sociology and anthropology.
The four recipients of the $3,000 award were Alexis Rampaul, Eduardo Rodriguez, Gerlaine Kiamco and Tiffany Scott. Recipients of the $1,500 scholarship included Alexander Cabigan, Kimberly Jones and Kelly Cordero.
Awards for departmental excellence include: Sarah Davis and Heather Johnson for anthropology, Connie McMillan and McAdam Richardson for criminology, Lindsey Fausett and Alexis Rampaul for sociology and Angela Black and Adam Khawaja for behavioral sciences.
