Aubrey Roman '14 is one of three beneficiaries this year of the Hon. Frederick J. Scullin, Jr. Scholarship Program, established in 2005 by the Northern District of New York Federal Court Bar Association for exemplary students attending law school within the district.

“I am deeply honored to join the ranks of those who have received this prestigious award and would like to thank the Federal Bar Association of the Northern District of New York, and Judge Scullin, for continuing this tradition,” said Roman, who grew up in Chittenango, N.Y., and earned a degree in economics at Siena College in Loudonville, N.Y., before coming to Albany Law.

“I am the law student who always knew that she wanted to go to law school,” explained Roman. “As a young student watching my father run his general practice, I became captivated by the ability that lawyers have not only to affect people on an individual level, but also to effectuate change on a macro level. This understanding propelled me to pursue a legal education.”

Since enrolling at Albany Law, Roman has become a member of the Albany Law Review, provided pro bono services to the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, and served as a Dean Sponsler Honors Teaching Fellow for Professor Dale Moore’s Civil Procedure class. She also spent last summer clerking for the Hon. Frederick J. Scullin, Jr., who is a Senior U.S. District Judge for the Northern District of New York.

Roman has accepted a summer associate position with Hiscock & Barclay, LLP, in the firm’s Albany office. The firm employs 200 attorneys in offices throughout New York state, as well as Boston, Washington, D.C., and Toronto.
