DETROIT (Nov. 2, 2007) – Wayne State University Law School will celebrate student success at its annual Honors Convocation Ceremony at 5 p.m. in the Community Arts Auditorium on Friday, Nov. 16, 2007.

More than 70 scholarships and awards will be given to students. Eligibility for the awards is determined by academic success, involvement in Law School and community activities, financial need, or future career interests.

“On behalf of Wayne State University Law School, I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to all our wonderful alumni and friends who help make this ceremony possible,” said Wayne Law Dean Frank H. Wu. “It is through their generous philanthropic efforts that students are offered recognition and financial support.”
A number of donors will be present to meet and mingle with award recipients. Photos from the event will be posted on the Law School’s website in the near future and a complete list of awards, donors and recipients will be published in the Law School’s annual alumni magazine, The Wayne Lawyer.
