The USC Gould School of Law has named Elizabeth Henneke the inaugural Audrey Irmas Clinical Teaching Fellow, a two-year position teaching and supervising cases and projects supporting the legal rights of women and children.

The fellowship is funded primarily by Audrey Irmas, a longtime supporter of USC and USC Law. Four generations of her family have attended USC, with four family members graduating from the law school.

The fellowship is intended to assist the work of the Immigration Clinic, where students provide legal representation and advice to persons seeking asylum; the International Human Rights Clinic, where students work on cases before international tribunals and seek justice on behalf of victims of human rights abuses; and the Post-Conviction Justice Project, where students provide legal representation to women serving life terms who have demonstrated significant rehabilitation and are eligible for parole.
