Making a Difference

Enduring Gifts

Brooklyn Law School’s endowed scholars program is rooted in the generosity of generations of alumni and friends of the Law School. In these uncertain economic times, our graduates are entering a challenging employment environment. It is more important than ever that we support their ambitions and help reduce their debt burdens. Our goal is to increase the number of our scholarships by ten percent every year until we reach 200 scholarships by 2015. When establishing an endowed scholarship, donors have the opportunity to name the fund in honor or in memory of someone who has touched their lives. Listed below are our new scholarships this year. We hope they inspire you to contact Jean Smith at (718) 780-0638 to discuss how you can do more for the next generation of BLS students.

  • The Irving Friedberg Scholarship was established by Eric Friedberg, Class of 1983, and his wife Margaret Friedberg, in memory of Eric’s father, Irving Friedberg, Class of 1948. The scholarship is awarded to a student who has demonstrated academic excellence and an interest in Internet Law, Privacy Law or Intellectual Property Law.

  • The Kanter Kornblau Scholarship was established by Stacy J. Kanter (BLS 1984) and Eric M. Kornblau (BLS 1984) on their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary in honor of their sister and brother, Leslie G. Kanter (BLS 1987) and David L. Kornblau (BLS 1980), and in loving memory of Janis L. Ettinger (BLS 1983). Leslie, David, and Janis each serve(d) as mentors to Stacy and Eric and, accordingly, this scholarship shall be awarded annually to a student with demonstrated financial need who has also demonstrated a commitment to mentoring others, either academically, professionally, or through extracurricular endeavors.

  • A fellowship established by the firm of Labaton Sucharow LLP in honor of Lawrence Sucharow `75 on his receiving a 2012 Alumni of the Year Award from Brooklyn Law School.
