First Ellen B. Ewing Law Intern Featured in Local Bar Journal

In 2007, Marque Carey became the first recipient of the Ellen B. Ewing Law Internship in Public Service. The fellowship allowed Carey to work in the Legal Aid Society’s Family Law unit for the summer, working with disadvantaged clients in divorce, child custody and child support cases.

Carey is completing a dual degree in law and social work. To read Carey’s profile in the August 2007 Louisville Bar Briefs, click here.
