Constance "Connie" Colley, currently a 3L at Loyola, was named Pro Bono Student of the Year at the Pro Bono Project's Volunteer Appreciation Awards and Reception. The Honorable Raymond S. Steib, Jr. Judge 24th Judicial District, Jefferson Parish presided as Master of Ceremonies.
According to a spokesperson for the Project, "She has provided services for those clients that were in desperate need of adivorce in order to move forward in their lives. While she helped principally with divorce pleadings and workshops, she was eager to pitch in wherever she was needed, and helped the staff with everything from drafting pleadings and contacting clients to data entry and envelope stuffing. In all, she donated almost 500 hours of volunteer time. Her good nature and intense interest in the clients and The Project’s mission were welcome additions to our office, and she is sorely missed by all."
Loyola was also named Pro Bono Law School of the Year for its "... continued commitment to the values shared by The Project and its supporters. The Project has continued to collaborate successfully with Loyola’s College of Law and recognizes the school for its support of our programs and our shared mission."
