Professor Scott Titshaw Receives Prestigious Fulbright Award

Mercer University School of Law Professor Scott Titshaw has been selected to receive a Fulbright-Schuman European Union Program grant to spend the 2014-15 academic year conducting research through the support of this prestigious award. Professor Titshaw will be doing comparative legal research on immigration and internal migration by same-sex couples and their children.
