Students in the Lincoln Alexander School of Law at Ryerson University received a giant boost thanks to the Larry and Judy Tanenbaum Family Foundation. Their $1 million gift to create the Dale H. Lastman Leadership Scholarships will reward excellence and leadership in law students with financial need. The $5,500-a-year scholarship is renewable each year of the student’s program, and will be awarded to three new students every year in perpetuity. It is a milestone contribution to the school’s ability to realize its vision as a place that will increase access to justice.
“I am proud to support these scholarships, recognizing and encouraging excellence in Dale’s name,” said Larry Tanenbaum, chairman and CEO of Kilmer Group and chairman of MLSE. “He is a fitting role model for emerging lawyers, and I hope that the Dale H. Lastman Leadership Scholarships bring his contributions to corporate law, teaching and philanthropic giving to the attention of our future lawyers.”
