Taylor & Ring’s Annual Victim Advocate Scholarship
At the Taylor & Ring law firm, we are committed representing victims of sexual assault, harassment and sexual abuse. We represent children, women, and men who have been victimized by these horrible crimes. We are committed to holding institutions responsible for their negligence in connection with these types of assaults. We also know that the best chance our clients have for a successful outcome lies in a strong civil justice system that vindicates their rights. Those individuals who are skilled advocates and who fight for their clients’ rights are the ones who ultimately make a big difference in victims’ lives.
That is why we are proud to announce the Taylor & Ring Victim Advocate Scholarship. This annual award will be given to a student interested in pursuing the study of law with a specific goal of helping survivors of sexual assault, rape, child abuse, or sexual harassment in the workplace. The successful candidate needs to be currently enrolled in, or will be enrolled in, an accredited college or university or law school for the upcoming academic year. The scholarship can be paid directly to the student’s college or law school at his or her request, if necessary.

During her time in law school, Hannah has variously clerked and volunteered with the Children’s Law Center of California, the Central American Resource Center, the Landlord-Tenant Clinic at the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, and the Lanterman Special Education Law Clinic. Most recently, Hannah spent the summer working with the Juvenile Unit of the Nashville Public Defender.
