Welcome to the second year of the Irene Merker Rosenberg Scholarship Program at the Center for Children, Law and Policy! The program is named in honor of the late Professor Rosenberg who taught at the University of Houston Law Center for 35 years. Professor Rosenberg was a leader in the field of juvenile and children’s rights. Our Scholars are selected on the basis of their demonstrated commitment to pursuing a career representing children’s interests, prior experience in related areas, and academic achievement. We started with only four scholars last year and have grown to eight! Kate and Patty are in their second year of the program and our new scholars are Alex, Cara, Chloe, Janice, Shiloh, and Ubani. To learn more about our individual scholars and Irene Merker Rosenberg, please visit our website!
Our scholars are working on several great projects this year! We will be updating resources for juvenile defenders, editing an upcoming publication on Children, Sex and the Law, planning our Spring conference (coming in March 2012!), and other projects to help children and attorneys in our community.
