A Voice for Women in the Law Since 1980
Women Lawyers of Alameda County is pleased to announce the first set of 2020 winners of the Margaret A. Gannon Legal Education Stipend. (Due to the extraordinary difficulties faced by 2020 graduates, a second round of stipends will be awarded this summer.) The MAG stipend was established in honor of Ms. Margaret Gannon who served as WLAC President from 2007-2009, and was also the visionary who championed its purpose.
Filling a niche rarely covered by scholarships, the MAG Stipend provides financial support to recent law school graduates to cover the period just after law school, helping to offset the cost of a bar preparation course or other expenses. The need for such support is even greater this year, with the California Bar Exam postponed and employment prospects more uncertain.
For a decade, through the generous contributions of our WLAC community, we have been proud to award 36 recipients with a total of $28,000. WLAC is thrilled to announce that the four amazing women named here will each receive a $2,000 stipend. MAG Stipend awardees have traditionally been honored at our annual Spring Reception. While the current crisis prevented us from holding our Spring Reception this year, we hope to honor the awardees at a future date.
In the meantime, please join us in congratulating our winners:
Ileana Judith Aranda
