The Oregon Women Lawyers Foundation has awarded its three 2014 Armonica Grants to Willamette University College of Law students. Armonica grants are given annually to third-year students, preferably women of diverse backgrounds, who support the mission of the OWL Foundation to support women and minorities in the legal profession. Grant applicants are asked to write an essay about their experiences and their support of the foundation mission.
Willamette students Keyra Kell’a Loo JD'15, Jayme Mori JD'15, and Jacqueline Leung JD '15 each received a $500 book grant and were matched with a minority judge as a mentor for the 3L year in law school. Kell’a Loo was matched with Washington County Circuit Court Judge Janelle Wipper; Mori was matched with Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Adrienne Nelson; and Leung was matched with Oregon Court of Appeals Judge Darleen Ortega.
