Moritt Hock & Hamroff LLP on Jan. 23 announced that James P. Stevens 1L has been selected as the 2017-18 recipient of the Moritt Hock & Hamroff Business Law Honors Fellowship.
The fellowship is awarded to an incoming law student who has demonstrated outstanding academic achievements and an interest in pursuing a career in business law.
“It is very rewarding to know that this fellowship can help to develop the gifts of these recipients, as they remain dedicated to joining our profession and setting new standards of professional excellence.” — Marc L. Hamroff ’83, Managing Partner, Moritt Hock & Hamroff
James, a resident of Bayport, New York, holds an M.Ed. in private school leadership from Teachers College, Columbia University, an M.A. in education from the University of Rhode Island, and a B.A. in chemistry from the University of Vermont.
“Growing up in a small-business household taught me how necessary good legal advice and representation is, not only to allow businesses to grow, but also to ensure that they provide for their employees. And as they grow, the challenges they face grow more and more complex — and they need more advice and better representation,” said James. “The fellowship is providing me with great opportunities to explore the nexus of business and law, and to contextualize my coursework, most notably through the relationships I’m developing with Professor Albert and Mr. Hamroff and his firm. It is also helping me to get a better sense of where I would like my career to take me and how to get there.”
The Moritt Hock & Hamroff Business Law Honors Fellowship was established in May 2016.
“Moritt Hock & Hamroff is deeply committed to recognizing and encouraging talented young people who represent the future of the legal field,” said Marc Hamroff ’83, managing partner of Moritt Hock & Hamroff, in a press release. “It is very rewarding to know that this fellowship can help to develop the gifts of these recipients, as they remain dedicated to joining our profession and setting new standards of professional excellence.”
Moritt Hock & Hamroff, with offices on Long Island and in Manhattan, provides a wide range of legal services to businesses, corporations and individuals worldwide.
