Amy Ahrens Earns Kansas Association for Justice Raymond Spring Award

Photograph: Amy Ahrens.The Kansas Association for Justice established an award in remembrance of Raymond Spring, '59, former professor and dean of the law school. This award is given to the Law Clinic intern who has demonstrated the highest commitment to providing legal services to clients in need

While in clinic, Amy represented clients in a variety of domestic and criminal cases. In one case, Amy worked long hours on a post-conviction petition that remained pending beyond her clinic semester. Amy wanted to see the case through, so she volunteered her time in the clinic during the holiday break and spring semester in order to fulfill her professional responsibility to her client. Professor Aliza Organick, Amy's supervising attorney, remembers Amy as "dependable, hardworking and, overall, a terrific student."

Amy currently represents clients through her general practice office in Tonganoxie, Kansas.
