As 2020 drew to a close, Catholic Law alumna Keeshea Turner Roberts ’02 found herself with several new accomplishments. On December 14, 2020, her article, “Law Schools Push to Require Anti-Racism Training and Courses,” was published in the American Bar Association’s Human Rights Magazine. The article addresses how law schools can look inward and address systemic racism.
Additionally, Turner Roberts was selected as a 2021-2022 Bellow Scholar. The Bellow Scholar Program recognizes and supports the research projects of clinical law professors that reflect the ideals of Professor Gary Bellow - a pioneering founder of modern clinical legal education. Turner Roberts was also awarded the "Advocate" Designation by the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA). NITA recognizes attorneys who have made the commitment to participate in a series of NITA programs offering a well-rounded foundation in advocacy skills.
