3L Steve Sharp Awarded Skadden Fellowship

Third-year student Steve Sharpe has been awarded a Skadden Fellowship, which will begin in 2005. This prestigious fellowship was established in 1988 by Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom in recognition of the need for greater funding for graduating law students who wish to devote their professional lives to providing legal services to the poor, the elderly, the homeless, and the disabled, as well as those deprived of their civil or human rights. Sharpe will study mortgage foreclosures in rural Indiana and will assist homeowners prior to and in going through foreclosures.
