Prizes for Study of Law: Application Deadline April 12

The Barbara Jordan Prize for the Study of Law or Public Policy was established to encourage African-American women to undertake careers in law and public policy. Students and alumnae who will attend law school or a graduate program in public policy are eligible to apply.

The David Burres Memorial Law Prize is awarded to a senior or an alumna who has been accepted to law school, with preference to those aspiring to practice law in the public interest. Need is a factor, but the prize is not restricted to students on aid.

Application materials are due in the Dean of the College Office on April 12. Go to for information about this and other prizes.
