Congratulations to Ronald Jaesung Park (UC Irvine School of Law, Class of 2016), who
received the Lim Ruger Foundation Sam Oh Memorial Scholarship at the Korean American Bar Association Annual Dinner on May 8, 2014. He was the Sponsorship Chair for UCI Law’s Public Interest Law Fund, and he has done almost 100 hours of pro bono work in the past year including work with the Orange County Public Defender’s office, the Mississippi Center for Justice, and the Korean Community Services Citizenship Clinic.
Also, congratulations to Adriane Peralta (UCLA School of Law, Class of 2014) and Kellye Ng-McCoullough (UC Irvine School of Law, Class of 2016), who were awarded Lim Ruger Foundation scholarships at the annual Southern California Chinese Lawyers Association’s 39th Anniversary Installation & Awards Banquet on May 1, 2014. Upon graduation, Ms. Peralta will begin a judicial clerkship in the U. S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. It is her passion to return to Los Angeles to serve the community as a civil rights attorney. Ms. Ng-McCoullough hopes to use her law degree to help at-risk youth. Her goal is to initiate a program to teach Asian-Pacific American high school students about the American legal system, including lessons on constitutional rights.
