Bowen Alumni Luncheon 2017

Bowen’s annual Alumni Luncheon was held Oct. 26 in the Little Rock Marriott Grand Ballroom. This year the alumni honoree for public service was Richard Bell (’81) and Professor Suzanne Penn, winner of UA Little Rock’s faculty excellence award in public service, was recognized for her work in providing access to justice in the Arkansas Delta region.

Proceeds from the luncheon will go towards furthering one of Bowen’s core values: Access to Justice. The two programs benefiting from the proceeds are the Arkansas Delta Clinic Project and the Rural Practice Incubator.

The Arkansas Delta Clinic Project, headed by Professor Penn, instructs students on legal, ethical, and access to justice issues, as well as poverty, and how these issues affect individuals needing legal assistance. Students then visit counties with fewer than one attorney for every 1,000 people and assist residents with the paperwork and steps necessary to obtain a divorce. These services were ranked highest in regard to legal needs in rural communities.

The Rural Practice Incubator program is currently in the final planning stages and will hopefully launch in fall of 2018. This program will work to connect new attorneys in need of employment with citizens in need of legal assistance. Arkansas’ rate of 2.04 attorneys per 1,000 residents is well below the national average of 4.11 per 1,000; in rural counties, the average drops to as low as 0.64 per 1,000.
