Lisa Cole Honored with Ms. JD Fellowship
3L Lisa Cole is among 12 law students from around the country honored with a Ms. JD Fellowship. According to Ms. JD—a non-profit, non-partisan organization that seeks to support and improve the experiences of women law students and lawyers—fellows are selected based on their academic performance, leadership, and dedication to advancing the status of women in the profession.
Among Cole's achievements at the College of Law so far, she is Business Editor of the Syracuse Law Review, a member the regional winning team for the 2019-2020 National Trial Competition, a semifinalist in the prestigious Tournament of Champions advocacy competition, and Treasurer of the Women’s Law Student Association.
Established in 2010, Ms. JD’s Fellowship Program promotes mentoring and professional development for future female attorneys. The mentors are taken from the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession’s Margaret Brent Award Winners and Commissioners. In addition to receiving financial support and invitations to ABA and Ms. JD events, each fellowship winner is paired with a mentor.
The 12 fellows reflect a full range of diverse interests and backgrounds, with the women pursuing opportunities in public interest, academia, and the private sector in every region of the country. This is the third year in a row a Syracuse student has been awarded a Ms. JD Fellowship. Lisa Cole follows Aubre Dean L'20, a 2019 recipient, and Erika Simonson L'19, a 2018 recipient.
