Bowen honors students for top papers and service

The UA Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law has honored students who were awarded a Dean’s Certificate of Service or achieved Top Papers in their classes for the Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters of 2019.

“Our awards banquet was scheduled for March 14, but had to be canceled due to pandemic concerns,” said Rejena S. Grotjohn, Bowen’s assistant dean of student affairs. “It disappointed all of us, but it in no way diminishes our students’ accomplishments.”

Dean’s Certificate of Service

In support of Bowen’s core value of Public Service, the Dean’s Certificate of Service works to encourage students to make community service part of their professional lives. Projects benefit the Little Rock community, and are completed outside of the students’ normal educational, career, and family responsibilities

A student who completes 100 hours of public service during a 12-month period in which the student is in good standing at the UA Little Rock Bowen School of Law will be awarded a Dean’s Certificate of Service.  A student who completes 300 hours of public service during this period and is in good standing will be awarded a Dean’s Certificate of Distinguished Service.

The 2019 Dean’s Certificate of Service recipients are:

Edith Chavez De Oseguera, Dean’s Certificate of Service

Pam Davis, Dean’s Certificate of Distinguished Service

Shaquika Hughes, Dean’s Certificate of Service

Adam Rose, Dean’s Certificate of Distinguished Service

Madhav Shroff, Dean’s Certificate of Distinguished Service

Top Paper Awards

At Bowen, “top paper” can also mean “top grade” in demanding classes. In addition to class work and lectures, students spend hours studying, outlining, and writing.  They sacrifice time with family and friends. Many of them also work full-time jobs. Top papers recognize a semester of hard work and a grasp of legal principles gleaned from their classes.
