Carly Calhoun won the Alabama State Bar’s Pro Bono Law Student Award.

She has been an active volunteer since her very first day of law school, working with the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program, Veterans’ Legal Assistance Clinic, Prison Reentry Clinic, Habitat for Humanity Wills Clinic, Project Homeless Connect and Wills for Heroes.

“Calhoun has contributed more than 75 hours of community service and pro bono work during her first two years of law school,” said Glory McLaughlin, Assistant Dean For Public Interest Law. “Not only is she a consistent and reliable presence at the Public Interest Institute’s events and pro bono programs, she always shows up with a smile on her face and a willingness to do whatever is needed.”
