Three graduates of the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service earned their concurrent law degrees through the UA Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law on Saturday.
Cody McKinney (’21), J. Dillon Pitts (’21), and Jacey Winn (’21) each earned a concurrent juris doctor through Bowen Law. The concurrent degree partnership between the Clinton School and Bowen Law is the only one of its kind in the nation, allowing students to earn their Master of Public Service and Juris Doctor while earning cross-credit for specified courses.
The intersection of public service and legal services takes place in government agencies at all levels, impacting educational and public international organizations, private public interest law firms, and private law firms performing pro bono work, among others.
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.
