A Pathway to Public Law for Diverse Young Lawyers
Elizabeth Clark was a highly respected leader of the State and Local Government Law Section with a passion for mentoring our young attorneys of color. As senior counsel at Allen Matkins in San Francisco, Elizabeth focused on renewable energy and sustainable development while dedicating a significant amount of her time to pro bono activities.
In her memory, we have put in place a prestigious fellowship with the explicit objective to profoundly sustain Elizabeth's commitment to bringing about a more inclusive legal profession. The Elizabeth Clark Young Lawyers Fellowship will be awarded to young lawyers whose past efforts and accomplishments show great promise for excellence in the practice of public law.
The award will be announced at the highly acclaimed Jefferson B. Fordham Award Luncheon held during the ABA's Annual Meeting. The Fellowship gives recipients access to:
- Excellent educational and networking opportunities at the Section's meetings
- Career advancement from writing articles for the Section’s publications
- Highly respected mentors in the areas of law which Elizabeth so loved and enjoyed
Your charitable contribution, designated to the Elizabeth Clark Young Lawyers Fellowship, will open the door for diverse young attorneys to participate fully in the Section of State and Local Government Law and in the legal profession overall.
Please make your generous contribution — online or by mail — to support the Elizabeth Clark Young Lawyers Fellowship this year and in those to come so it may continue perpetually. Thank You!
