Professor Pruitt Speaks at Marshall Scholars Annual Meeting

Professor Lisa R. Pruitt was one of six former Marshall Scholars who spoke at the Annual Meeting of the Association of Marshall Scholars at Stanford University on June 23. The talks were offered as part of "A Walk Down Memory Lane" at the event's Finale Dinner.  

Marshall Scholarships support American scholars of high ability as they study for a graduate degree in the United Kingdom. Professor Pruitt, a member of the Marshall Scholars Class of 1989, used her scholarship to earn a PhD in Laws at University College London.

Lisa R. Pruitt is a professor at UC Davis School of Law whose recent scholarship explores the legal relevance of rural spatiality, including how it inflects dimensions of gender, race, and ethnicity.  Pruitt's work also considers rural-urban difference in transnational and international contexts.
