Clinton School graduate Amie Alexander (‘18) has been recognized as one of the Outstanding Pro Bono Attorneys of the Year by Legal Aid of Arkansas.
The annual honor is formally presented on Law Day (May 1) to honor attorneys who have dedicated their time to those in need.
“Legal Aid wants to recognize Ms. Alexander for selfless commitment to the cause of the impoverished, the defenseless, or the oppressed through volunteer service to the Clients of Legal Aid of Arkansas,” said Billy McKenzie, Pro Bono Coordinator of Legal Aid of Arkansas.
Alexander is a Healthcare Associate at Friday, Eldredge & Clark, LLP.
Alexander’s practice is focused in the area of healthcare, where she works primarily on various corporate and compliance matters. She drafts and reviews policies to ensure compliance with federal healthcare regulations such as HIPAA, Stark I and Stark II, Anti-Kickback and Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement. Her clients include hospitals, physician groups and other medical service providers.
As a Clinton School student, Alexander partnered with the Association of Arkansas Counties to study the needs of Arkansas Counties interested in implementing County Youth Councils. Her International Public Service Project took her to Tokyo, Japan, to work with the Foreign Agricultural Service, which links U.S. agriculture to the world to enhance export opportunities and global food security.
In addition to her Master of Public Service, Alexander earned her juris doctor from the UA Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law. She earned her undergraduate degree in agricultural education from the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.
The Clinton School Speaker Series not only enhances the education of Clinton School students, but also provides a venue for the public to engage in intellectual discussions on the issues of the day.
