Government Practice Section Awards Scholarship to IU McKinney Student

The Government Practice Section has awarded its fourth annual scholarship to Drew Kirages of Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. As attorneys who represent government agencies or who assist clients in matters involving government agencies, the members of the Government Practice Section award the $1,000 scholarship to a second- or third-year law student who attends one of Indiana’s four law schools and who demonstrates a strong academic record and an interest in government practice. The section commends Mr. Kirages for standing out among a group of intelligent, motivated and service-minded applicants.
