Minorities in the Law committee makes a double play
The long-running Minority Clerkship Program is scheduled for its twentieth year in 2007 with Greg Swart, Norton Webster, Scott Davis and Jason Boyd steering the planning committee to celebrate this achievement. There have been over five hundred participants in the program since its inception and they “want to get people back together to celebrate this big event in 2007,” according to Swart and Webster. Seventeen Minorities in the Law committee members joined them to begin planning the celebration for past participants and their employers, then they adjourned to the reception.
