COVID-19: Community Updates and Resources
Albany Law School announced today that it has received a gift of $250,000 from Stephen and Prudence Younger ’82 to establish a scholarship in support of students of the
Albany Law Review.
This scholarship is being created in memory of David D. Siegel, a longtime member of the faculty at the law school and original author of the famous
New York Practice treatise. Professor Siegel was once referred to by former New York Chief Judge Judith S. Kaye as the Court of Appeals’ “favorite Master of the Art of Civil Practice.”
“This new endowed fund will make a big difference in the lives of our law review students. We thank the Youngers for establishing it and championing its success,” said President and Dean Alicia Ouellette.
In the coming months, the law school will be working with alumni and friends of the
Albany Law Review to grow support for the Law Review Scholarship Fund.
This commitment marks the eighth new named endowed scholarship established during
We Rise Together: The Campaign for Albany Law School. Gifts to student scholarships are critical as they help remove a significant barrier to the profession.
As the cost of a legal education continues to climb, Albany Law School remains committed to enrolling and educating a diverse pool of talented students. Endowed scholarships ensure that the most promising students can attend Albany Law School, regardless of their economic status.
The law school has secured more than $27 million in gifts and commitments toward
We Rise Together: The Campaign for Albany Law School. The historic campaign, announced in 2019, is an ambitious fundraising effort to support student scholarships, innovation, and programs that make an impact on the community.
