Lauren Henry L'17 Receives New York State Bar Association 2017 President’s Pro Bono Service Award
Third-year student Lauren Henry received the New York State Bar Association 2017 President’s Pro Bono Service Award in the law student category. Henry beat out nominees from across the state for this recognition and was the only student in NYS to receive the award at a special ceremony held in Albany on May 2, 2017.
Henry has interned at Legal Assistance of Western New York over recent summers, working on veterans and health law matters.

Each year the New York State Bar Association proudly bestows the President’s Pro Bono Service Awards. These awards recognize outstanding pro bono contributions made by individual attorneys, law students, law firms, corporate counsel and/or government offices. One award is presented to an outstanding law student pro bono volunteer.
