Since 1998, the Women Lawyers Association of Michigan Foundation (WLAM Foundation) has encouraged and supported the next generation of women attorneys by partnering with other benefactors to fund annual scholarships. This year, the Foundation will award $42,000 to 12 outstanding law students attending Michigan’s five accredited law schools (University of Michigan Law School, WMU Cooley Law School, Michigan State University College of Law, Wayne State University Law School, and University of Detroit Mercy School of Law).
In 2019, our firm established a scholarship under the WLAMF umbrella, joining a circle of donors that has included General Motors, Masco Corporation, Miller Canfield, and Dickinson Wright. Managing shareholder and WLAMF president Kristen Pursley announced The Dobrusin Law Firm Scholarship will be offered again this year with an award totaling $3,500.
The Foundation Board will begin reviewing students’ applications this month. The scholars will be announced in April and recognized at the WLAMF Annual Meeting in June 2022.
