The Arkansas Association of Women Lawyers (AAWL) has awarded two female law students from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law bar examination preparation scholarships.
AAWL celebrated their annual scholarship winners during an April 5 meeting at the Little Rock Club, where Joann Maxey, general counsel of the University of Arkansas System, served as the guest speaker.
The 2019 scholarship recipients include Victoria Percifield and Sydney Rasch from Bowen. Aashika Jayanth, Margaret Rushing, and Dakota Thornbury from the University of Arkansas also received the award.
Each of the students will receive a $2,000 scholarship that will go toward a bar preparation course to prepare them to take the bar exam later this year.
Formed in 1938, AAWL is dedicated to promoting the interests of women in the law.
