“I am beyond grateful and excited to be a diversity scholarship recipient and for the opportunity to work at Dickie McCamey this summer,” said Ms. Rodriguez. “This scholarship is a reminder of the ways that I can help represent my communities in the legal profession.”
Ms. Rodriguez grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She studied at the University of New Mexico and earned two degrees, a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Bachelor of Arts in Women’s Studies. She is a 2025 Juris Doctor candidate at Pitt. In addition to the Dickie McCamey Diversity Scholarship, Rodriguez is Pitt Law’s inaugural recipient of the Susan Yohe Pittsburgh Legal Diversity & Inclusion Coalition (PLDIC) Scholarship.
“We salute Dominique’s outstanding commitment to promoting equality and fostering inclusivity. Her unique perspective and experiences will undoubtedly enrich the academic community, allowing for a more vibrant and inclusive learning environment,” said Christopher T.
