Jennifer Chin ('13), Crystal Adams ('15) and Tiffane King ('15) received prestigious scholarships granted to diverse law students and those committed to public interest careers. Chin, a leader of the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association and active member of the UC Irvine Law Review and Environmental Law Society, received the Bar Foundation's Public Interest Scholarship. Adams and King received the Bar Foundation's Diversity Scholarships. Adams came to UCI Law with Capitol Hill experience already under her belt, from an internship with Senator Dianne Feinstein. She aspires to be a lawyer who creates policy benefiting underrepresented communities. King, who suffered a near-fatal spinal cord injury seven years ago, has dedicated herself to helping others who sustained life-altering injuries. She plans to use her law degree to further champion the cause of people with disabilities.
