At Washburn Law, Scott participates with the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program and the Pro Bono Society, and serves as a staff writer for the Washburn Law Journal.

This past summer, Scott was chosen to participate in the Washburn Law Dane G.

Placed with Herman Law Office, P.A., in Hays, Scott observed a variety of courtroom proceedings, researched and wrote about many legal issues, and experienced the lifestyle and work done by legal professionals practicing in rural Kansas.

Scott plans to use her communication skills, legal knowledge, and the transactional /criminal law experience from her externship to better help her clients achieve their goals.
