SULC student chosen to receive BRBA Baton Rouge Legal Scholarship


Southern University Law Center student Sherry Sanders is one of two law students who will be awarded the Baton Rouge Legal Scholarship for the 2013 Spring Semester at the Baton Rouge Bar Association November Luncheon at Baton Rouge Marriott in Baton Rouge, La., Thursday, Nov. 8, 2012. 


The scholarship, a $1,000 award jointly given by the Baton Rouge Bar Association and the Baton Rouge Bar Auxiliary, is presented to an upperclassman who exhibits scholarship, leadership and financial need.


Sanders, editor-in-chief of the Southern University Law Review, plans to begin a law clerkship with Baton Rouge City Court Judge Laura P. Davis in January 2013. While in law school, she interned for U.S. Congressman Randy Neugebauer. She also has served as a law clerk at Glasheen, Valles and Inderman, in Lubbock, Texas, as a legal writing teaching assistant, and as an outreach manager and mediator for the Lubbock County Office of Dispute Resolution.


The BRBA has served the legal profession and the community for 83 years. It is the one of the largest voluntary bar associations in Louisiana and consists of more than 2600 lawyers from the Baton Rouge area and surrounding parishes.
