MABLSA Member of the Month
The Pennsylvania State University, The Dickinson School of Law
Andrew Scott is a second year law student at The Pennsylvania State University, The Dickinson School of Law. He is the Vice President of Adaptive Outreach, a student organization dedicated to raising awareness of disability related issues; the Diversity Representative of the Latino/a Law Students Association (LLSA).
Mr. Scott is an exceptional leader within his local BLSA chapter. Without hesitation, he seamlessly took over the position of Academic and Career Planning Chair when a sudden vacancy left the seat unfilled over the summer. Mr. Scott organized a 1L workshop, which is both helpful to the incoming first year students in acclimating into law school and a great marketing tool to recruit new BLSA members. Andrew's law school leadership has strengthened his skills and developed his character. Further, Mr. Scott has never hesitated to help out a fellow BLSA member. He is selfless and passionate about the law and furthering the rights of all under represented groups. He has reached out to LLSA and ensured that both minority student organizations stand together in enhancing the dream of total equality.
Though Mr. Scott became wheelchair bound in August of 2003, he has never slowed down. He often plays wheelchair basketball on the Penn State Ability Athletic team. His passion for disability rights and civil liberties litigation is fueled by his personal story which he hopes will inspire others to dream, persevere, and succeed.
Before law school Andrew received both a Bachelors of Business Administration and a Master of Business Administration from Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi.
