PS LAW NET and the National
Association of Law Placement awarded Loren Stewart L ’05 with the
Pro Bono Publico Award at their 9th Annual Recognition Event in October.

Program and the Nationalities Service Center in Philadelphia. As the project
founder and supervisor, Stewart has trained 24 students to provide legal
assistance to indigent clients in asylum cases. In addition to his work
with the Clinic, Stewart is also serving as a pro bono intern for the
Volunteers for the Indigent Tax Program. He also organized the 2004 Sparer
Symposium, which examined the Housing and Community Development Act on
its thirty-year anniversary.
