April 2, 2013

PORTLAND, Maine – Nicole Bissonnette, a third year student at the University of Maine School of Law, has won a Law Student Ethics Award from the Northeast Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel.

The Law Student Ethics Awards honor outstanding ethics in a clinical program. Bissonnette has been a student attorney at Maine Law’s Juvenile Justice Clinic.

Along with award recipients from 10 other law schools in New England, Bissonnette will be honored at a gala dinner on April 12 at the Union Club of Boston. She will receive a cash award of $1,000, and will be accompanied at the event by Professor Christopher Northrop, the supervisor of the Juvenile Justice Clinic.

Bissonnette was a Linda Smith Dyer Fellow with the Maine Women’s Policy Center, and has interned at the Lewiston District Court and with the Savatteri Law Firm in Portland.

The Juvenile Justice Clinic is a program within Maine Law’s Cumberland Legal Aid Clinic, which provides legal services to low-income individuals and families. Student attorneys are specially licensed by the state and federal courts. They work under the close supervision of Maine Law faculty members and gain valuable hands-on experience while addressing a critical societal need.
