Two LSU Law students were awarded scholarships at the monthly Baton Rouge Bar Association (BRBA) Luncheon on October 6 at De La Ronde Hall.

Brent Joseph Cobb, 3L, was awarded the Baton Rouge Legal Scholarship, which is jointly given by the BRBA and the Baton Rouge Bar Auxiliary.  This scholarship is presented to an upperclassman who exhibits scholarship and leadership. Cobb, a past participant in the LSU Law School Trial Advocacy program, is a copy editor of the Civilian Newspaper.

Jayne Wabeke, 2L, received a scholarship from the Baton Rouge Association of Women Attorneys (BRAWA).  The BRAWA scholarship is awarded annually to a second- or third-year student at LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center and Southern University Law Center based on commitment, involvement or leadership in community or civic activities that benefit or affect women.  Wabeke is a junior associate with the LSU Law Review.
