HONOLULU — The William S. Richardson School of Law's Center for Excellence in Native Hawaiian Law has selected five new Summer Fellows in Native Hawaiian Law - Moani Crowell, Liʻulā Kotaki, Mana Moriarty, Chris Santos and Napali Souza.

Kotaki and Santos will be working at the Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation; Moriarty and Souza will be working with the Bioprospecting Commission housed at the Office of Hawaiian Affairs; and Crowell will be working at the law firm Paul, Johnson, Park & Niles, which is representing the Office of Hawaiian Affairs in a pending case.

The fellowship program provides stipends to current law students wishing to spend the summer of 2007 working under the supervision of an attorney on legal issues of importance to the Native Hawaiian community.

The Center for Excellence in Native Hawaiian Law was established in 2005 at the William S. Richardson School of Law through a Native Hawaiian Education Act grant. The Center focuses on education, research and scholarship, community outreach, and the preservation of invaluable historical, legal, and traditional and customary materials. It also offers new courses and supports Native Hawaiian law students as they pursue legal careers and leadership roles.
