Allison Hall - Dick Thornburgh Prize for Legal Service - 2018

Allison Hall attended the University of Pittsburgh for her bachelor’s degree followed by a dual graduate school degree with Pitt Law and School of Social Work to pursue public interest law.  This dual degree enhanced the technical legal skillset, equally important cultural competence, and interpersonal skills needed for her career serving under-resourced communities and families. 

This fall Allison begins a year of government service as an inroad to a career as a staff attorney with a nonprofit or advocacy organization where she can provide more direct services to clients in need.
