A feature article in JMORE cites the career-spanning work of University of Baltimore School of Law Prof. Michael I. Meyerson as an advocate for minority law students and a strong proponent of a level playing field in all aspects of the legal profession.
The article cites the continuing success of the school’s efforts, led by Meyerson and others, to encourage qualified minority students to apply for and go on to be successful in law school.
“We’re looking for smart people and people who have grit, who can get knocked down, get back up, ask for help and move toward success,” Meyerson says in the article. He cites the impact of the school’s Fannie Angelos Program for Academic Excellence, which has set students on the path to great careers as public defenders, prosecutors, government lawyers, and more.
“We’ve reached a point in the program where some of the area’s most prestigious law firms are asking for Angelos scholars,” he notes.
