Maryland Carey Law Students Awarded Global Initiative Grants

Four Maryland Carey Law students have been awarded grants from the University of Maryland, Baltimore’s Center for Global Education Initiatives to work abroad in the Summer of 2015.

Four Maryland Carey Law students have been awarded grants from the University of Maryland, Baltimore’s Center for Global Education Initiatives to work abroad in the Summer of 2015.

  • Jonathan Lim 1L will travel to Hong Kong with the School of Nursing’s Dr. Mei Ching Lee to examine palliative care and advanced directives in the Chinese population. 
  • Ishan Dasgupta 1L will work with Dr. Caroline Burry on the health issues of imprisoned mothers in England. 
  • Catherine Lee 1L and Mona Qureshi 2L will accompany Carey Law Professor Doug Colbert and Law & Social Work Service Program Manager Rebecca Bowman-Rivas to Zomba, Malawi to work with the law school there on bail reform and prison condition issues.

The grants pay for the students’ travel expenses.

"Law does not operate in a vacuum. It is essential for new lawyers to understand how law interacts with other disciplines” said Dean Donald Tobin. “Having the opportunity to develop these interprofessional relationships while still in law school – and on the international level – is a great opportunity for our students.”

The Center for Global Education Initiatives, under the umbrella of UMB’s Centers for Global & Local Engagement, offers students and faculty the opportunity to improve communities around the world through scholarship, practice, and learning.
