As one of its initiatives in the legal community, the AWA has committed to award $750 annually to an outstanding law clinic student from each of the two local law schools, whose work has focused on issues important to the AWA. At Tulane, the $750 award is given to the most outstanding student in the Domestic Violence Law Clinic (as chosen by the Director of the Clinic). At Loyola, the $750 award is given to the most outstanding student in the family law section of the Law Clinic (to be selected by the family law attorney/advisor at the Clinic).
Our 2018 award recipient from Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, Family Law Section of the Stuart H. Smith Law Clinic and Center for Social Justice is Bonnie J. Thomas. Our 2018 award recipient from the Tulane Domestic Violence Clinic is Jessica Greenberg.
