Wayne Law Honors Convocation celebrates student achievement and donors’ generosity

November 28, 2012

More than 80 scholarships, fellowships, awards and prizes were presented to accomplished students at the Wayne State University Law School Honors Convocation Nov. 14. The ceremony recognizes exceptional students and gives some of them a chance to meet their scholarship donors in person.

Forty-nine percent of Wayne Law’s JD candidates received scholarships for the 2011-12 school year. Many of the awards are funded by former and current faculty members, alumni and law firms. Student recipients are chosen based on academic success, involvement in Law School and community activities, financial need or interest in a specific career.

“On behalf of the Law School, its faculty and staff, I would like to extend special thanks to our generous donors and benefactors,” said Wayne Law Dean Robert M. Ackerman. “It is through their efforts that our students are offered this annual recognition and support, allowing them to focus more on their studies and less on finances while students at Wayne Law.”
