Judge Hart Memorial Scholarship Presented to Hofstra Law Student

UNIONDALE, NY - Rivkin Radler Managing Partner, William M. Savino, has presented the Judge Edward J. Hart Memorial Scholarship for Trial Advocacy to Brittany-Parker Shea, a recent graduate of Hofstra University's School of Law.

The Judge Edward J. Hart Memorial Scholarship for Trial Advocacy was created in honor of Edward Hart, a distinguished judge and accomplished trial lawyer, who was a partner at Rivkin Radler before being elected to the bench of the New York State Supreme Court and later appointed by the Governor to a Judgeship in the Appellate Division in Brooklyn. When Judge Hart passed away in 1996, Rivkin Radler created a scholarship in his name for Hofstra Law Students. Each year, the firm provides this $2,500.00 scholarship to a student or students who are selected by the Hofstra Law School.

This year's Scholarship recipient, Brittany-Parker Shea of Campbell, California, has accepted a position in the Public Defender's Office of Los Angeles County. While at Hofstra, Shea was the recipient of the Monroe H. Freedman Excellence in Criminal Justice Award. She was a member of the Criminal Justice Clinic where she represented clients charged with misdemeanors, appeared on record, wrote motions and conducted investigative work. Shea was president of the AAJ Hofstra Trial Club, where she organized and facilitated a mock trial competition with the law school.
