Eight law students at the University of Kansas have been selected as Dean’s Fellows for 2013-14, including Becky Howlett, of Kansas City.
A third-year law student, Howlett has served on the staff of the Kansas Law Review and will be an associate editor during the 2013-14 academic year. Her student organization involvement includes Women in Law, Environmental Law Society and Native American Law Students Association. Howlett, who is returning for her second year of the program, will serve as the Head Deanâ€™s Fellow. She is the daughter of Wayne and Rosemary Howlett. She graduated from Piper High School. As an undergraduate, Howlett attended the University of Kansas.
The second- and third-year students will serve as mentors for first-year students, providing them with a peer’s insight into the first-year experience and helping ease their transition into law school.
This is the seventh year for the program, which is administered by the law school’s Office of Student Affairs.
“To be selected as a Dean's Fellow, one must show leadership, compassion and a willingness to serve those following behind them,” said Kaitlin Brigman, student affairs counselor at the law school. “The Dean’s Fellows are a select group, and the ones chosen for this academic year possess an especially wonderful set of qualities that will serve as an invaluable resource to the incoming students.”
