James Wallmuth, III Public Service Internship Memorial Stipend

In 2010 James “Jimmy” Wallmuth, III was a rising second-year law students of the class of 2012 at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. Wallmuth had previously worked in the York County District Attorney’s Office as a case manager before attending Pitt Law. He returned to York in summer 2010 for an internship at a local law firm. On July 28, 2010, Wallmuth was shot and killed in a York, PA city park during a robbery attempt by his assailant, Jordan Wallick, who is now serving a life sentence for second-degree murder. The loss of Wallmuth was a senseless tragedy for family, friends and the Pitt Law community. 
To honor his son, the Wallmuth family established the James Wallmuth, III Public Service Internship Memorial Stipend. The stipend has been established in memory of James Wallmuth, III and will provide $1,500 to a promising student at Pitt Law who is employed in a full-time (400 hours), unpaid public service or non-profit legal position during the summer between his or her first and second year.
