SLAGH Deborah Hunt Law Student Leadership Award
About the Award
The Stonewall Law Association of Greater Houston ("SLAGH") recognizes that positive accomplishments of law student LGBTQIA and ally leaders are vital to the success of the LGBTQIA community as a whole. SLAGH is committed to supporting and cultivating emerging legal leaders. To promote the success of recent LGBTQIA and ally law school graduates, and in response to to the financial struggles law school graduates often face, SLAGH created a monetary award program: the Emerging Leader Award (the "Award"). The Award is now given in memory of Deborah E. Hunt, long-time member and board member of SLAGH, and a pioneering Houston-based attorney in LGBT law and in the promotion of the rights of the LGBTQIA community.
