The Ellis & Judd Outstanding Directed Intern Award was established in 2011 by Ellis & Judd Law Office to recognize the contributions of a directed intern as selected by the Clinic faculty. The impetus behind establishing this award is to encourage students to participate in not only the important work the clinic undertakes, but to experience the bridge the clinic provides between being a law student and becoming a lawyer. It is the firm’s belief that the experience gained as a directed intern builds the confidence necessary to combine competent, vigorous representation with the compassion necessary to become a lawyer who truly makes a positive impact on the profession. Steven M. Ellis and Alex B. Judd graduated from Washburn University School of Law in 2006.
