Legacy Scholarship Fund

Honoring members and donors and supporting legal scholars.


The Legacy Scholarship Fund was established to honor members, and the memory of members, who have made donations to the Foundation to provide tuition assistance to full time law students enrolled in one of the Foundation’s Constituent Law Schools.

Donating to the Legacy Scholarship Fund in an amount of $30,000 or above provides for an endowment that honors a member, or the memory of a member, in perpetuity to support the Foundation’s mission.
