Alexander Mallory, a J.D. candidate graduating this week from the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, is grateful for his experience at ASU Law, as well as for the fellowship he has experienced as a student.

Mallory was the recipient of a Diversity Legal Writing program scholarship, a study abroad scholarship from the ASU Study Aboard Office, and a scholarship from the Indian Legal Program, which was generously provided by Kate Rosier of the Indian Legal Program at ASU Law.

Coming to ASU Law he knew he was in the right place, but was surprised that he would be able to spend half of his law school experience elsewhere.

“I went from Maui, HI to San Diego, CA to Milan, Italy and finished in Washington, D.C. Each experience had an indelible impact on my personal and professional development,” Mallory said.

These travel opportunities were made possible through the generosity of donors.

“My scholarships enabled me to spend time studying abroad and it would simply not have been possible without the financial support I received,” said Mallory. “Thank you for your generosity and for changing the lives of so many students. I, and countless others, would not have had access to a legal education but for donors like you who invest in students like me,” he added.

He is most grateful for his time at ASU Law and for his experience with the Indian Legal Program. As a Winnebago (Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska), Mallory is often inspired by the stories of his ancestors.

“Millions of stories stretched across time. Each one of them different. Each one of them the same. I am an evolution of their stories, and each of us contributes to an indispensable part of something greater,” Mallory stated. “I’m grateful my Creator gave me ears to listen, hands to serve, and a heart for justice. May I use these gifts and my degree to fight for a more just and human world,” he added.

After graduation he plans to move to the Dallas/Fort Worth area to participate in a clerkship through the Department of Justice Honors Program. Congratulations Alexander!
