The California Bar Foundation named UC Davis School of Law student Ana Orozco as the recipient of the Munger, Tolles & Olson Jay Fujitani Memorial Scholarship. On Oct. 5, 2017, attorneys Miriam Kim and Anjan Choudhury presented Ms. Orozco with the scholarship at the foundation’s annual recognition ceremony.
Formerly named the Munger, Tolles & Olson Diversity Scholarship, the award was renamed in 2017 in honor of the firm’s late partner, Jay M. Fujitani.
Ms. Orozco was selected as one of 35 students, representing 15 schools, to receive a scholarship. The award provides financial support to first-year California law students with the goal of enhancing diversity in the legal profession.
Ms. Orozco is a first-year student at the UC Davis School of Law. She earned her B.A. from California State University, Stanislaus in political science. The daughter of farmworkers who migrated to Wasco, California, Ms. Orozco is pursuing a law degree to be a stronger advocate for her family and community. Prior to matriculating to law school, Ms. Orozco was a member of the firm’s 2015 MTO Fellows Program class, as well as a Sidley Austin Pre-Law Scholar.
In addition to Ms. Orozco, Grecia Rivas, a UC Irvine School of Law student and member of the 2016 MTO Fellows Program class, was awarded a California Bar Foundation scholarship.
