Legal Leaders Scholarship Winner 2014
Console & Hollawell’s 2014 Legal Leaders Scholarship Winner:
The winner of the Console & Hollawell Legal Leaders Scholarship 2014 is 23-year-old Kathleen Horne from Atlanta, Georgia. Horne graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Alabama’s Honors College and is a Juris Doctor candidate at the Emory University School of Law.
While she was a college student, she suffered a traumatic brain injury in a hit-and-run accident. It was in the aftermath of this serious accident that Horne became interested in learning more about the legal system. As she struggled to recover physically and mentally from her injuries, she found herself confused and overwhelmed by the complex laws and the state-by-state variances within the legal system. Horne decided to use her devastating experience to change the world for the better. After she completes law school, she will follow her passion to make a positive impact on the lives and legal understanding of others who, like her, find themselves forced to deal with a complex and confusing legal system.
