Cardozo Student Receives the Ruth Bader Ginsburg Memorial Scholarship from NYSBA
3L Shelley Wu received the Ruth Bader Ginsburg Memorial Scholarship from the New York State Bar Association’s Women in Law Section, the Committee on Annual Awards and the Committee on Civil Rights on April 1.
Wu is the Submissions Editor and Podcast Editor for Cardozo Law Review and Co-President of the Cardozo Mentorship Program. Prior to coming to Cardozo, Wu graduated early from Fordham University and worked as a paralegal in the Child Abuse and Domestic Violence Units of the New York County District Attorney’s Office.
Wu earned the $5,000 scholarship due to her efforts in supporting survivors of domestic violence and their children, seniors, people with disabilities and inmates preparing for parole hearings.
In support of Wu’s candidacy for the scholarship, Dean Melanie Leslie wrote that Wu has “cultivated a service-oriented mindset and a commitment to advancing women’s rights.”

3L Elka Blonder Writes Article for the New York State Bar Association
In the article, Blonder writes that “the reality is that domestic violence victims suffer long beyond the span of abuse. While Integrated Domestic Violence courts may not prevent lifelong consequences - they provide victims of domestic violence a structure designed to help them.”
