SAN DIEGO (May 14, 2013) – For the third straight year, Higgs Fletcher & Mack LLP has provided a $10,000 scholarship to a University of San Diego law student. The scholarship was made possible by contributions from 29 of the firm’s attorneys, and awarded to Lisa Charukul for the 2012-2013 academic year.
“Our firm and attorneys have made it a priority to promote diversity in law school education,” said Steve Cologne, a partner at Higgs Fletcher & Mack. “We all support this important mission and are proud to collectively continue to help USD students complete their education.”
Charukul was awarded the Diversity Scholarship based on her community service involvement, academic achievement, commitment to volunteering and other personal qualities. Currently, Charukul is interning at the Public Defender's Office and is slated to graduate in 2013.
