Women, Children and Social Justice Awards

Honoring the women who started the Women, Children, and Social Justice Clinic, this fund provides awards to law students in the field of intimate partner violence.

The Women, Children, and Social Justice Awards Endowment Fund supports awards for UB Law School students who are participating in work and/or research related to intimate partner violence.

The fund provides awards in honor of the two women who started the clinic — Professor Suzanne E. Tomkins '92, co-director of the Program for Excellence in Family Law, and Catherine Cerulli '92, director of the Susan B. Anthony Center for Women's Leadership at the University of Rochester.

The Suzanne E. Tomkins Women, Children and Social Justice Advocacy Fellowship funds work by a law student during the summer or academic year on a specialized advocacy project focused on intimate partner violence issues.

The Catherine Cerulli Women, Children, and Social Justice Research Award helps fund student research relating to intimate partner violence and assist in the presentation of that research at a conference or in a publication.
