Texas Tech Law Graduate Earns State Pro Bono Award
August 5, 2009
A Texas Tech University School of Law graduate recently received a state award for
her commitment to the provision of legal services to the poor.
The Texas Supreme Court’s Access to Justice Commission
Law Student Pro Bono Award has been given to Renee Brosch, a May law graduate from
Granger. The award recognizes a law student whose pro bono work has made a significant
impact on the community and reflects a passion for advocating on behalf of underserved
In 2008, Texas Tech’s School of Law received the inaugural Law School Commitment to
Service Award, presented by the same organization.
Walt Huffman, dean of the law school, says Texas Tech continues to be a leader among
Texas law schools in promoting pro bono service.
“For us to be the only law school selected for the inaugural public service award
last year, and then to have Ms. Brosch recognized this year from among all the law
students in Texas is really a quite special – and quite significant – combined achievement,”
Huffman said. “The awards emphasize Texas Tech’s leadership in public interest law
and pro bono service to those less fortunate.”
Brosch will be honored at the New Lawyer Induction Ceremony in Austin on Nov. 16,
and be presented with a $2,000 stipend in recognition of her efforts.
