          3L Jessica Owen has been awarded one of the 15 California Bar Foundation’s Public Interest Bar Exam Scholarships, which covers the cost of a bar preparation course for deserving graduates entering public service.

          Owen did the Criminal Law Concentration at UC Hastings, and will enter the California Department of Justice Attorney General’s Honors Program in September. The honors program provides promising DOJ candidates two years of employment, with a chance to do policy work. Owen will work in Los Angeles handling appeals for criminal cases. “This is my dream job,” she said.
