Darren Del Dotto '14 is the most recent recipient of a health law scholarship from the Slomo and Cindy Silvian Foundation.

The second-year law student is currently enrolled in a health law course with Professor Evelyn Tenenbaum, and he looks forward to participating in the Health Law Clinic or a health-related field placement. He also volunteers with the Rensselaer County Public Defender's Office and is a teaching assistant for Advanced Legal Reasoning.

"I've always had a social conscience, and I recognized early on that a legal education would give me a great opportunity to help people and have a real impact," said Del Dotto, who is from Shrewsbury, Mass., and graduated with departmental honors from Union College with a degree in environmental science.

Albany Law recently received an additional $23,000 in funding from the Slomo and Cindy Silvian Foundation, which is based in Melville, Long Island, bringing the total amount contributed by the foundation to its health law scholarship fund to $100,000 since 2008. To date, four students have received scholarships.
