Scholarship Luncheon Honors Both Students and Donors

Scholarship Luncheon 2013

Since Dean Christohper Edley, Jr.'s arrival in 2004, one of his top priorities has been strengthening financial aid to ensure that Boalt remains accessible to all qualified students. That effort is bolstered greatly by the generosity of alumni and friends who provide named scholarships to exceptional Boalt students. Contributors and recipients were honored April 16 in the Goldberg Room at the law school's annual Scholarship Luncheon, where they had a chance to interact and discuss their careers and aspirations. Speakers included Robert Barr, executive director of the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology; Mallun Yen '95, who spearheaded fundraising for a scholarship in his name; and scholarship recipient Lauren Smith '14.

"I'm incredibly grateful that I was selected to receive the Robert Barr Scholarship this past year," Smith said. "It will go a long way towards supporting my commitment to public interest and technology law, and it's an honor to receive a scholarship in the name of someone who has built such a legacy at Boalt and in the field of technology law. The scholarship program allows those of us facing immense loan burdens to receive much-needed relief as we attempt to finance an increasingly expensive legal education."
