The scholarship was awarded based on, among other requirements, demonstrated involvement and interest in entertainment and sports. With this scholarship, she has been given the opportunity to be a Student Reporter for the upcoming forum covering two panels, and will be published in the ABA Forum on Entertainment and Sports Industries Journal "The Entertainment and Sports Lawyer" which will come out in January 2017.
"I'm blessed to have the opportunity to attend this conference with the top entertainment and sports attorneys in the world and honored to represent St. Thomas University," stated D'Bria. "This is not only a great opportunity for myself but for the school because we will be recognized as an institution that is a leader in the entertainment and sports industries."
Attending this conference will also allow her to build relationships with professionals and fellow law students.
D'Bria is Vice-President of Sports for the St. Thomas Law chapter of the Entertainment & Sports Law Society and serves on the ABA Forum on Entertainment and Sports Industries law student caucus leadership subcommittee; which consists of about 12 law students from across the country who are interested in entertainment and sports. The caucus also develops content and opportunities aimed at fellow law students who would like to thrive in this industry. These students work hand-in-hand with the forum's leadership group.
