          UC Hastings 1L Chris Ballard, awarded one of the prestigious Allen E. Broussard scholarships, was among those recognized at Alameda County Superior Court Law Day, where the recipients of the 2013 Broussard Scholarship were honored at the Law Day Student Luncheon.

          The Allen E. Broussard Scholarship Fund was established in 1996 after the death of California Supreme Court Associate Justice Allen E. Broussard, and was incorporated as the Allen E. Broussard Scholarship Foundation in 1999. The goal of the foundation is to continue Justice Broussard’s work in the minority community in assisting young lawyers in their pursuit of a career in the legal profession.

          Ballard was raised in the San Joaquin Valley city of Wasco, California. Overcoming the struggles of poverty, he went on to study Politics and Business at California State University, Fresno. Upon graduating, Ballard turned down a position on Wall Street to work as a Community Organizer for a non-profit organization helping people who were losing their homes. He was appointed as Planning Commissioner for the City of Wasco, the youngest in California history and the first African-American to do so in Wasco.
