Scott Zienty

Joint JD/MS Student

I'm from Sugar Land, Texas and attended the University of Texas at Austin. I studied anthropology and Spanish. Before coming to Tulane, I served for three years in AmeriCorps. Two of those years were in Burlington, North Carolina, where I worked in a Catholic Charities office called Centro La Comunidad that provided family and community resources for the Latino population in the area. It was here that I began exploring the nexus of community development and law.
