Each year, a select group of students who have distinguished themselves by their research are designated as Rush Scholars.

Two students will present their papers each day of the Symposium at 1 PM in Room 127 of the Law School. A discussion will follow each presentation. The symposium is free and all are welcome to attend.

The annual symposium honors Benjamin Rush (1746-1813), a physician, medical professor, and signer of the Declaration of Independence. Rush founded the first clinic in the United States devoted to medical care of the poor, wrote one of the most influential books on psychiatry of his day, and was an outspoken social reformer.
