Larkin Hoffman is proud to congratulate two of its law clerks who were recently recognized for their international humanitarian work, local community leadership and academic accomplishments.

Victoria Dutcher, a student at the Mitchell Hamline School of Law, was awarded a Benjamin B. Ferencz Fellowship in Human Rights and Law by the human rights organization, World Without Genocide. Victoria’s work focuses on monitoring persecuted religious groups in Burma and developing outreach to human rights groups operating in that country. This is the second year Victoria has been honored with the fellowship.

Muna Omar, a student at the University of St. Thomas School of Law, was awarded the Judge Michael Davis Scholarship by the Minnesota Association of Black Lawyers, a bar association for minority attorneys in Minnesota. Muna was awarded the scholarship for her work in the community and academic achievement, as well as for demonstrating how her work advances the mission of the Minnesota Association of Black Lawyers.

“We are proud of the achievements and recognition of both award recipients and delighted to be associated with these remarkable law students,” Bill Griffith, president of Larkin Hoffman said.
