“We are indebted to the sponsors of the new Legacy Fund for enabling D.C. women to pursue law or public policy, and we congratulate UDC Law School, our pioneering public interest law school, for the first three women selected as awardees,” Norton said. “At the same time, I am honored the Fund has chosen to honor me by attaching my name to this outstanding public service scholarship opportunity.”
