Back to Law School . . . With a Few Extra $$$
Supporting law student education through scholarships is one of the Foundation’s highest goals.   Since the inception of the law student scholarship program, the Foundation has awarded $542,000 in scholarships.

This year the EMLF awarded $60,000 in scholarships for the 2013-2014 academic year to the following students:

  • David W. Cias, Southern Methodist University, Dedman School of Law
  • Margaret Coulter, American University, Washington College of Law
  • Aaron K. Friess, Washburn University School of Law
  • Jonathan B. Hollan, University of Louisville, Brandeis School of Law
  • Michael J. Howard, University of Colorado Law School
  • George McIntyre, West Virginia University College of Law
  • Sunu M. Pillai, University of Pittsburgh School of Law
  • Seth C. Rasmussen, Southern Methodist University, Dedman School of Law
  • Peter Thompson, Southern Methodist University, Dedman School of Law
  • Ryan M. Watson, West Virginia University College of Law

The majority (74%) of the total scholarship awards are funded by annual operating income from program registrations and membership dues.  The scholarship program began in 1984, awarding $2000 annually.  For the past two years, the scholarships awards have totaled $50,000, and this year the EMLF was able to award $60,000, due in part to an $85,000 contribution provided through the Cabot Settlement Proceeds, established for WVU law students.  Scholarships include the $1000 Paul N. Bowles Scholarship, the $1000 James H. Davis Scholarship, the $2000 Sean Cassidy Scholarship, and the $2000 Mary Sue Schulberg Scholarship.

Things To See and Do in Baltimore – From Visit Baltimore

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor has been one of the major seaports in the United States since the 1700s and has blossomed into the cultural center of Baltimore. The Inner Harbor offers more to see and do than you might imagine: Harborplace and The Gallery offer unique shopping, diverse dining and a variety of entertainment right on the picturesque waterfront.

Maryland Science Center –  Let your senses and your mind wander as you experience the numerous sights and hands-on activities at the Maryland Science Center. Featuring an IMAX theater and a planetarium, it’s sure to please.

The National Aquarium houses sharks, dolphins, rays and tropical fish among the more than 16,000 creatures in naturalistic exhibits, including a walk-through rain forest, an exciting live-action dolphin show and a new Australian exhibit.

Fort McHenry
Just a water-taxi ride away, you can learn about the Battle of Baltimore and the nation’s history by visiting Fort McHenry. Did you know that nearly 200 years ago it was here at Fort McHenry that our national anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner, was penned by Francis Scott Key as he witnessed the Battle of Baltimore during the War of 1812.

Baltimore Water Taxi
One price buys unlimited rides for the day.  Runs from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m. Mon-Sat and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 9 p.m.  Stops include the Aquarium, Harborplace, Science Center, Rusty Scupper, Pier Five, Harbor East, Maritime Park, HarborView, Tide Point, Fells Point, Captain James Landing, Canton Waterfront Park, and Fort McHenry.

Inner Harbor Restaurants
Elegant gourmet cuisine, ethnic foods from around the world and plenty of fresh seafood from Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay abound. Come sample a taste of Baltimore at one of the many Inner Harbor restaurants.

Baltimore Orioles
A visit to Camden Yards is just minutes away and, if you’re a true baseball fan, be sure to see the Baltimore Orioles Hall of Fame exhibit and the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum.  Baltimore Orioles host the Boston Red Sox, June 13-16, with afternoon games on Saturday and Sunday.

Power Plant Live!
A block away from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is Power Plant Live, a premier dining and entertainment district that features a variety of restaurants and nightclubs surrounding a common plaza. There is also outdoor seating which often features live performances.

Baltimore Museum of Art – Cone Collection
Although it is closed on Monday and Tuesday, if you arrive over the weekend be sure to visit this splendid museum, which houses the Cone Collection, the world’s largest collection of works by Matisse, including 42 oil paintings.  The collection also includes masterpieces by Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso, and Vincent van Gogh.  Open until 6:00 p.m. on Sunday.
