The WLAC Board is disappointed to announce that our annual Judges’ Dinner for 2020 has been canceled to ensure the safety of all who would attend.
With that door closed, we open a window of hope to young women graduating from law school in this difficult time. This year, we take the unprecedented step of tripling the number of recipients of our Margaret A. Gannon (“MAG”) Legal Education Stipend. The MAG Stipend is a fund dedicated to providing financial support to graduating law students who find themselves in great need during their bar studies. We have already awarded four MAG Stipends to outstanding women in our community. We will now expand our reach to others in need.
We invite you to empower women graduating during a time of financial crisis and sparse opportunity. Please donate what you would have paid for your ticket, what you would have pledged as a sponsor, whatever you can spare, to encourage young attorneys entering the profession in the face of so many challenges.
We know that next year our Judges’ Dinner will be a spectacular time to celebrate the way we came together to support the ambition of women in a time of adversity. Please be a part of it.
If you want a glimpse of the good that these scholarships provide, we invite you to congratulate the first four recipients of the MAG Stipend: ILEANA ARANDA (U.C. Hastings), NORJMOO BATTULGA (Golden Gate), CHLOE CZABARANEK (Santa Clara), and LARISSA DAVIS (U.C. Berkeley). Read more about these extraordinary women.
