Three Boalt Students Win Herma Hill Kay Fellowships

The Boalt Hall Women's Association (BHWA) awarded Herma Hill Kay Fellowships on April 13, 2005, to three first-year students. The fellowships will support the students while they pursue unpaid legal projects this summer involving the promotion of women's rights. The recipient of the Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher Herma Hill Kay Fellowship is Lorri Anne Carrozza '07, who will conduct research in Afghanistan aimed at helping women participate in the legal system as clients, lawyers and judges. Carole Vigne '07 received the Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe Herma Hill Kay Fellowship to participate in a project providing legal and social services to Mexican immigrant women and children in the United States who are survivors of domestic violence. The Herma Hill Kay Fellowship was awarded to Tabitha Lauren Lundberg '07, who will assist with litigation and education involving LGBT parenting. The fellowships were created in 1999 by the student-run BHWA to honor the legacy of Professor Herma Hill Kay in the area of women's rights. 4/15/2005
