Alisha Lubin, a rising 3L, has been awarded a fellowship from Ms. JD, a non-profit organization dedicated to nurturing aspiring early-career women lawyers.
Lubin is one of 17 law students from universities including Harvard, Columbia, Stanford and the University of Chicago chosen this year to receive the fellowship.
The Emory University graduate is the president of the Women’s Law Society and serves as national director of programming for the National Black Law Students Association. Last year, she was a regional finalist in the Frederick Douglass Moot Court competition. She also received the Sadie T.M. Alexander Book Scholarship from the Women Lawyers Division of the National Bar Association, as well as the Hispanic Bar Association of Pennsylvania’s Legal Education Scholarship.
In addition to receiving financial support and invitations to attend American Bar Association and Ms. JD events, Lubin will be paired with a mentor selected from the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession’s Margaret Brent Award Winners as well as commissioners.
This is the second consecutive year a Drexel Law student has received a fellowship since Ms. JD began awarding them in 2010.
