Fortin, a 2012 prospective graduate from the University at Buffalo Law School, was among the first to receive the $5,000 fellowship. Lauren L. Morales of Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center was awarded a fellowship alongside Fortin.
Through the fellowship, it is expected that Fortin will gain a broader understanding of the complexity of trusts and estates law. ''The Trusts and Estates Law Section is proud to provide funding for these exceptional fellowships. We hope Claire Fortin and Lauren Morales will gain professional skills and competencies that will help them shape their professional goals,'' commented the Section Chair, Elizabeth A. Hartnett of Syracuse (Mackenzie Hughes).
Fortin graduated magna cum laude from the State University of New York at Albany. She served as the executive editor of the Buffalo Public Interest Law Journal during the 2010-2011 school year. She is involved in the Buffalo Public Interest Law and Alternative Dispute Resolution Programs and has also been active in the Advocacy in Mediation Competition.
