STAY TUNED FOR PLANS FOR THE 2021 ANNUAL JUDGES’ DINNER!!
We hope you will continue to support the 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.
We know that 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.
