The Center for Law, Health & Society is currently seeking applications for the annual health law award. The award is named in honor of Charity Scott, founding director of the center and Catherine C. Henson Professor of Law, who has generously endowed this award, and is presented on Honors Day at the College of Law. The award is granted to a Georgia State Law 3L student who demonstrates outstanding achievement in the area of health law.
The health law award is based on outstanding performance by a law student across a range of criteria, including: academic performance in health law courses; writing in health law; and experiential learning (e.g. participation in clinics, externships, etc.) in the area of health law; commitment to health law through activities such as student organization leadership, health law related moot court participation, and other activities; and demonstrated professionalism and service to the profession.
