Ms. Rath will graduate from the University of West Los Angles School of Law in 2008. She participates in her school's weekly legal aid clinic and also contributes to the student body by compiling an annual list of scholarship opportunities for students. Ms. Rath currently works as a freelance writer to support herself and her two children while she attends law school. She is dedicated to the needs of women and children and plans to pursue a career in the challenging new field of Family Formation law, which deals with assisted reproduction technologies, the use of DNA from unrelated parties and surrogacy agreements. Ms. Rath's commitment to helping others, her excellent academic record and her drive to succeed are just a few of the reasons that WLALA is proud to name her as a 2007 WLALA Scholarship Recipient and to award the NAWJ Equal Access to Justice Scholarship to Ms. Rath.
