Savannah Law School (SLS) 3L student, Dre’Kevius (D.K.) Huff, recently won the LSAC Diversity Writing Competition in the second-year category. The topic of the essay competition centered on why pipeline programs targeting students from underrepresented racial and ethnic backgrounds are essential to the future of the legal profession.* Along with recognition and this prestigious honor, D.K. was awarded a $5,000 prize.
D.K. won the competition in the second-year law student category with his essay, “The Need for Effective Pipeline Programs for the Underrepresented and Their Role in the Legal Community.” D.K. noted that he was inspired by his SLS Constitutional Law and Law and Society professors to participate in the competition. At SLS, he is a member of the Phi Alpha Delta fraternity and is Notes Editor for the Savannah Law Review. He is currently an intern at the Chatham County District Attorney’s Office.
D.K., the Savannah Law School community is very proud of you for this accomplishment. We look forward to continuing to watch all the good you bring to SLS and the legal community over the years to come!
