Message from the Foundation President

Dear Fellow Members,

We are delighted to announce that applications for scholarships from the Louis D. Brandeis Law Society Foundation, and for the Ash Fellowship, are now available on our website under the Foundation tab. The annual Foundation scholarship event will occur on June 9, 2016. This year the event will be a cocktail reception and program, beginning at 5:30 P.M.

If you are a law student, or if you are a young lawyer engaged in public service employment, we encourage you to apply for the various scholarships. You may apply for more than one of the scholarships, although you may only win one scholarship per person. If you are not a law student, and you know of a worthy law student, please let them know of these valuable scholarship opportunities. All applications for the scholarships are due by May 6, 2016.

Thanks so much for publicizing these opportunities among your friends and colleagues.

All my best,

Sayde J. Ladov, Esquire
President, Louis D. Brandeis Law Society Foundation
