DLA Piper Professor of Law Michael Meyerson reports that the Maryland chapter of the Federal Bar Association has given $2,000 to support the Fannie Angelos Program for Academic Excellence‘s Baltimore Scholars LSAT Award Program.
Meyerson is the director of the Fannie Angelos Program, a collaboration between the University of Baltimore School of Law and Maryland’s historically black colleges and universities, or HBCUs. Founded in 2008, the program has three aims: to help students pass the LSAT, to prepare students to excel once they begin their formal legal education, and to increase diversity in the legal profession.
“We’re very appreciative that the Federal Bar Association recognizes and supports the Angelos program’s efforts to expand opportunities in the legal profession,” Meyerson said.
University of Baltimore School of Law alumnus Peter Angelos in 2013 donated $1 million to the program, which is named for his sister Fannie Angelos, also a UB School of Law graduate. The program was formerly known as Baltimore Scholars.
