Student Named Rosenbloom Award Recipient
Third-year student Jasmine Lee is this year’s recipient of the University of Virginia School of Law’s Rosenbloom Award.
The award, bestowed annually, was established by Daniel Rosenbloom ’54 to honor students with a strong academic record who have significantly enhanced the academic experience of other law students by volunteering support and assistance.
“Jasmine has been an incredible resource to her fellow students, and we are so pleased to give her this award,” said Sarah Davies ’91, assistant dean for student affairs.
Katharine Janes ’21, the new Student Bar Association president, said Lee comforted her last year after a close friend passed away, and volunteered to take notes during Janes’ absence in their Antitrust class.
“Jasmine loves UVA Law and has made it her mission to make sure all students here feel included and supported,” Janes said in nominating Lee. “I would not have had as successful an academic career at UVA Law if it weren’t for Jasmine; while this is due in part to her help in my 1L classes and Antitrust, it is due more significantly to her emotional and social support that has helped me live a happy life here at UVA Law. I would not be the student or person I am today without Jasmine Lee.”
Lee, of Midlothian, Virginia, has served as SBA president, membership chair for the Black Law Students Association, a Peer Advisor, writer and publicist for the Libel Show, and a Virginia Law Ambassador tour guide. With the SBA, she previously was a member of the First Year Council and served as secretary.
Before law school, she double majored in American studies and foreign affairs at UVA.
“It is such an honor to receive the Rosenbloom Award,” Lee said. “I am so deeply humbled that faculty and my peers thought so highly of me to nominate me in the first place. I’m really proud to be a member of this community and to have worked with so many amazing people. Especially now, as we are separated, it is evident how much this community relies on each other and works together. I am just really grateful.”
After graduation, Lee will be working in the Washington, D.C., office of the law firm Bracewell.
