Savannah Law School student, Meagan M. Rafferty, was selected as the 2015 recipient of the State Bar of Georgia Law School Excellence in Access to Justice Award. The prestigious Bar individual law student award specifically recognizes a law student who has excelled in participation in support of a civil pro bono or legal aid program or who has developed or has been instrumental in the development of a civil pro bono program satisfying previously unmet civil legal needs or extended services to underserved segments of the population.
The news of the award in May came just two weeks after Ms. Rafferty received notice that she had also been selected as the recipient of the 2015 Savannah Bar Association Judge Phyllis Kravitch Scholarship. The Judge Phyllis Kravitch Scholarship award of $1,000 is given to one student based on merit for their second or third year of study in law school.
Congratulations Meagan for being awarded the 2015 State Bar of Georgia Law School Excellence in Access to Justice Award and the 2015 Savannah Bar Association Judge Phyllis Kravitch Scholarship, the law school applauds your hard work!
