Suffolk University Law School Students awarded fellowships


Marina Moriarty of Salem, a second year day student, received the Paul R. McLaughlin Memorial Fellowship. She will intern at the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office, Dorchester division.

The Paul R. McLaughlin Memorial Fellowship Fund was established at Suffolk University Law School as a tribute and memorial to the late Paul R. McLaughlin, assistant attorney general, distinguished public servant and member of Suffolk Law class of 1981, who was a victim of violent crime as he returned home from work on September 25, 1995. This fellowship fund supports a summer internship for a Suffolk University Law School student interested in pursuing a career in criminal law in the public sector.

Lisa Oliver of Eden Prairie, Minnesota, also a second year day student, was awarded the Thomas J. Drinan Memorial Fellowship. She will work in the criminal division of the United States Attorney's Office in Boston.

The Thomas J. Drinan Memorial Fellowship is awarded annually to a second year day or third year evening student to work for the summer in a public sector criminal law internship. In honor of its namesake, the fellowship is awarded to a Suffolk University law student who demonstrates a commitment to the highest standards of integrity and advocacy within the criminal justice system, and the character and skills necessary to achieve these standards.
