SLAGH Law Student Leadership Award

About the Award
The Stonewall Law Association of Greater Houston recognizes that positive accomplishments of young LGBT leaders are vital to the success of the LGBT community as a whole. SLAGH is committed to supporting and cultivating emerging legal leaders. In order to promote the success of recent LGBT law school graduates, and in response to a difficult financial climate, SLAGH created a monetary award program: the Emerging Leader Award. All eligible individuals are encouraged to apply for the Emerging Leader Award. SLAGH will announce the selected recipient(s) at our annual meeting on April 26, 2017.
