New Endowed Scholarship Fund

I don't blog most donations to the law school — this isn't a PR blog — but these guys are longtime supporters of the local NPR station and it feels like I've heard their sponsorship announcement a million times on morning radio. It's nice to learn they are our alumni and that they remember us fondly and that they are supporting our students.

University of Miami School of Law Alumni Support Scholarships for Students: University of Miami alumni Jay Shapiro and Robert Weissler presented the School of Law with a generous gift for an endowed scholarship recently. Shapiro and Weissler are shareholders at the Stearns Weaver Miller Weissler Alhadeff & Sitterson Endowed Scholarship Fund.” Each scholarship will be provided to a rising second year and third year student based on merit and financial need on an annual basis.

The scholarships will be named the “Jay B. Shapiro/Stearns Weaver Miller Weissler Alhadeff & Sitterson Endowed Scholarship Fund” and the “Robert I. Weissler/Stearns Weaver Miller Weissler Alhadeff & Sitterson Endowed Scholarship Fund.” Each scholarship will be provided to a rising second year and third year student based on merit and financial need on an annual basis.

“I'm very pleased to be able to give something back to the UM Law School, to which I owe a large part of my professional success,” stated Shapiro. “It is important for all UM law alumni to support the law school in its efforts to attract and retain the highest caliber students.”

“Our firm's many graduates of UM Law School exemplify the exceptional quality and creativity in the legal work that is afforded to our clients,” said Weissler. “I am committed to support and financially provide for the success of future graduates of the Law School.”

Messrs Shapiro and Weissler, we thank you.
