WLAM to present annual awards March 28

State Bar of Michigan President Julie Fershtman will speak about leadership, and United States District Judge Victoria A. Roberts will receive a Legacy Award during The Women Lawyers of Michigan (WLAM) Foundation Annual Awards Reception March 28 in Detroit.

The WLAM Foundation's Awards Reception is also the occasion to introduce the 2012 Outstanding Women Law Students chosen to receive a total of $25,000 in scholarships to support their education. The awardees were selected on the basis of demonstrated leadership on women's issues, through a competitive process.

2012 marks the WLAM Foundation's 16th year of making awards to deserving women law students. In that time, 195 awardees have received a total of $436,000 in financial support of their law school educations. The Foundation's many corporate, law firm and individual donors have given generously to support the WLAMF's educational mission.

The Awards Reception will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at The Whitney, 4421 Woodward Ave. The suggested donation is $25.
