A Message from the Chancellor

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,

Hon. A. Michael Snyder (ret.)
Chancellor, Louis D. Brandeis Law Society

Congratulations to Brandeis Members Jennifer Coatsworth, Steve Silver, and Lisa Margulies - Recognition for making a difference

We would like to take the time to congratulate Brandeis members Jennifer Coatsworth, Steve Silver, and Lisa Margulies for being recognized by media outlet Billy Penn for being three of the 18 young leaders making a difference in Philly's legal community. The article may be found here (http://billypenn.com/2015/06/18/whos-next-in-the-law-18-young-leaders-making-a-difference-in-phillys-legal-community). Jen, Lisa and Steve appear as numbers 3, 13, and 16, respectively. Please take a few moments to read about these impressive young lawyers and feel free to personally congratulate them on this honor as well. It is very satisfying to have Brandeis members overrepresented on this exclusive list.

Louis D. Brandeis Law Society Mentorship Program

The Louis D. Brandeis Law Society is pleased to kickoff the third year of our mentoring program. The program is designed to promote professionalism, ethics, and legal skills by cultivating mentor relationships in support of the Jewish legal community. Mentoring offers students and young attorneys the opportunity to connect one on one with attorneys and judges who can provide the benefit of their years of experience. The mentor relationship provides guidance for the next generation as they forge ahead in law school and as young attorneys. If you would like to sign up to connect with a Brandeis mentor, volunteer to be a mentor, or if you have any questions, click here to contact Samantha Mertz. Please provide your name, contact information, preferred practice area, school/graduation information (if applicable), and any goals you hope to achieve through this process. We will do our best to match you accordingly.
