Summer 2014

Young Achievers

All Haile the Prizewinner: Andrew Haile ’15 heads to Germany and Poland this summer as a recipient of the Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics. He is one of forty-eight graduate students selected for the program (and the second from BC Law in two years), which uses the history of the Holocaust as a lens to explore contemporary ethical issues. Haile also published “Din v. Kerry: A Missed Opportunity to Challenge the Doctrine of Consular Non-Reviewability” in Bender’s Immigration Bulletin in March.

He Speaks Their Language: Michael Shannon ’14, who is fluent in Spanish, French, and Pulaar, is on his way to New York City for an Immigrant Justice Corps Fellowship. At law school, he has represented asylum seekers through the Federal Appeals Clinic.

The Wright Way: Alyce Gowdy Wright ’15 is this year’s recipient of the Massachusetts Black Lawyers Association’s (MBLA) Honorable Reginald Lindsay Public Service Law Book Award. The award supports law students of color who, like Judge Lindsay, have overcome adversity and are pursing legal public service careers.

International Glory: Samantha Miko ’13, an associate with K&L Gates, has won the prestigious Deak Award for her student note, “Norm Conflict, Fragmentation, and the European Court of Human Rights,” in the BC Law Review. The Deak Award is provided by Oxford University Press for the best international law student article in a student-edited law journal.

Celebrating Diversity: Precious Eboigbe ’15 has been awarded a scholarship from the Latham & Watkins Diversity Scholars Program, which is designed to increase the number of diverse law students studying at ABA-accredited law schools who want to pursue a career at a global law firm and intend to practice law in the United States.
