Alan Dugger, ’22, and Haley Huson, ’22, were recognized with the Nebraska State Bar Association (NSBA) Tenant Assistance Project Outstanding Law Student Advocate Award. This award recognizes law students each semester who have made a significant contribution to the Tenant Assistance Project (TAP) and exceed expectations in their effort to support the program and contribute to its success.
Alan Dugger has been an integral contributor to TAP since its early stages in summer 2020 while completing his clerkship with the Lincoln Commission on Human Rights. He continued to contribute through his clerkship during the academic year and as a pro bono law student this summer. Alan’s contributions have been invaluable and his dedication to TAP has been unrelenting.
Haley Huson worked as Professor Ryan Sullivan’s research assistant and provided support in tracking past and on-going eviction cases, including the creation of over 200+ eviction defense packets which are critical to TAP volunteers and attorneys. The CDC moratorium was extended twice during Haley’s tenure, resulting in a massive influx in continued cases for which Haley took responsibility of tracking and prepping.
