Barton Clinic Receives Community Service Award

The Emory Law Barton Child Law and Policy Clinic was named a recipient of the 2008 Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Award, presented by the Rollins School of Public Health and the Goizueta Business School. The Barton Clinic was recognized at an awards ceremony Jan. 24, at the Goizueta Business School as part of Emory University’s King Week events. The theme for this year’s celebration is “Balancing the Scales: Social Justice on the Forefront.”

The Barton Clinic was nominated for this award by Emory law student Britt-Marie Cole-Johnson 08L. “My yearlong experience as a student in the Barton Clinic was by far one of the most rewarding experiences of my law school career, and everything that I learned there will serve me and my clients well throughout my career,” said Cole-Johnson. “The Barton Clinic is an outstanding resource for students and professionals dedicated to serving children.”

The Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Award celebrates individuals, schools, programs, organizations and businesses that are working to correct the social injustices and inequities in our communities.
