RACHEL HANNAFORD L’04 received the Henry Meacham Award at the Public Service Program’s 8th Annual Recognition Event. The award goes to a student who displayed outstanding commitment to social justice. Hannaford was a summer intern at DC Prisoners’ Legal Services and the Legal Aid Society of New York Community Law Office. She also served as Chair of the Equal Justice Foundation, Associate Editor of the Journal of Constitutional Law, and co-founder of the student-run prisoners’ rights project.

Public Service Program Director Susan Feathers noted during the event that a record 710 law students participated in the pro bono requirement during the 2003-2004 Academic Year, providing nearly 26,000 hours of community service. Of those students, a record 71 percent of the third-year class exceeded the pro bono requirement.

Damon Hewitt, L’00, assistant counsel at the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, delivered the keynote address. He talked about his organization’s litigation, which involves school finance, educational adequacy, affirmative action in higher education, voting rights and indigent defense.
