Paralegal Supervisor Wins Gates Cambridge Scholarship

Paralegal Supervisor Wins Gates Cambridge Scholarship

The Gates Cambridge Scholarship allows outstanding students from outside the United Kingdom to further their studies at the University of Cambridge. The competition for both admission to the university and the award itself, which includes the full cost of study, air fare and a living allowance, is fierce.

But one of our own, Emily Gladden, a Paralegal Supervisor employed by Federal Defenders of New York – Southern & Eastern Districts, is among the 29 Americans selected to receive the prestigious scholarship.

Gladden, who is from Princeton, N.J., plans to pursue an M.Phil. degree in criminology at Cambridge University’s Clare College. She is particularly interested in young and first-time offenders, reducing recidivism and improving rehabilitation efforts.

For more information, see Gladden’s “New Scholar 2010” profile.

Congratulations to Emily Gladden for her outstanding academic achievements to date and receipt of this distinguished award from Cambridge University.

She is an excellent role model for our profession, and an inspiration to anyone seeking higher education. To paraphrase Dr. Suess, “Oh, the places this paralegal will go!”
