Adding to more than $1M in new student scholarships raised over the past year, Touro Law Center Dean Patricia Salkin is pleased to announce two new student scholarships: The Rivkin Radler Scholarship and the Campolo Middleton & McCormick, LLP Scholarship.

Student scholarship support has been a priority for Dean Patricia Salkin who stated, “The Touro Law community is grateful to both Rivkin Radler and Campolo Middleton & McCormick for their generous investment in our institution and our student body. These scholarships help to ensure access to legal education and represent a commitment to the future of the legal profession and the delivery of legal services.”
