Mr. Brown, who will be a 3L in August, was awarded a scholarship by the Federal Communications Bar Association.
The Federal Communications Bar Association (FCBA) announced that it has selected Devron Brown, rising 3L, as a recipient of a FCBA Foundation Scholarship. The Foundation's law school scholarship committee reviewed applications from current students at law schools across the country who demonstrated merit and need, as well as an interest in communications law and technology and public service. Nine scholarships were awarded to law students ranging from $2,000 to $5,000.
Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, Mr. Brown moved to Washington D.C., in 2012 and served on Capitol Hill for nearly four years. Prior to law school, he got his start as a special assistant to then Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, JD '64. At GW Law, Mr. Brown is the Senior Publications Editor for the Federal Communications Law Journal. He has held internships at Fannie Mae, the Network Advertising Initiative, and Facebook, to name a few. He is currently a senior associate intern at PwC.
Mr. Brown is thankful to the FCBA and shared a few remarks about why this scholarship is important to him. "Receiving this [scholarship] is humbling and solidifying," he said. "This is typically a field that requires experience and deep knowledge of the issues, and to say that I have been able to come to law school and do this in a short amount of time—it's pretty rewarding and humbling just to be recognized for the work that I have done in a field that I am interested in."
With the beginning of the new academic year just a few short weeks away, Mr. Brown shared that he is looking forward to his final year at GW Law. Mr. Brown, who is also a member of the Moot Court Board, will soon be participating in a moot court competition in San Diego, CA. Once he graduates, he hopes to pursue a career in communications law.
