IU McKinney Student Tarah Baldwin Receives IBA Pro Bono Award
Tarah Baldwin, a 3L evening program student at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, received the Indianapolis Bar Association’s Pro Bono Award at the organization’s annual recognition luncheon November 14.
In addition to being a Program on Law and State Government Fellow for 2013, Baldwin has more than 500 hours of pro bono service registered with the law school. She’s taken part in programs like the IndyBar Ask an Attorney Program, the Protective Order Pro Bono Project, Indiana Legal Service's Senior Law Project, and the IU Student Outreach Clinic, among many others.
She’s interested in elder law issues, and hopes to pursue this area of law upon graduation. During the fall semester, Baldwin, along with McKinney student Sean Deneault, coordinated the Program on Law and State Government Symposium on the topic of Elder Law.
“I have a heart for advocacy,” Baldwin said. “I am very interested in elder law issues and the protection of the elderly from predatory schemes. Working with the Senior Law Project has provided me with an education to assist and protect my future clients.”
