Applications accepted for $5,000 scholarship 

Officials from the Genesee County Bar Foundation have announced that applications are being accepted for the John S. Beagle Scholarship established to assist students from Genesee County with financial support while in their second or third level of law school. It is through the generosity of the late John S. Beagle and his family that the scholarship has been established. 

“John S. Beagle was a distinguished member of the Genesee County Bar Foundation and Genesee County Bar Association,” said a spokesperson for the GCBA. “He was affectionately known as ‘Legal Beagle,’ a man of irreproachable character and goodwill who had a passion for justice. He also was a man who recognized the struggles of those less fortunate and thought that economics should not be a barrier to attending law school. Those fortunate enough to be the recipient of a John S. Beagle Scholarship will never have the opportunity to know this eminent attorney, but his memory will be embraced by those he helped.”

A minimum scholarship of $5,000 will be awarded. The application deadline is May 1, 2022. For those interested in learning more about the Genesee County Bar Foundation and the John S. Beagle Scholarship, information can be found at www.gcbalaw.org or by calling the Foundation at (810) 232- 6000. 


Law professors to discuss award-winning ‘Oversight Riders’ paper

The Levin Center at Wayne Law will offer an online presentation on “Oversight Riders” by Professors Kevin M. Stack and Michael P. Vandenbergh of Vanderbilt Law School.

Stack and Vandenbergh’s will discuss their award-winning paper “Oversight Riders” (Notre Dame Law Review 2022) Tuesday, February 22, from noon to 1:15 p.m. via Zoom.

“Oversight Riders” won the 2021 Levin Center Award for Excellence in Oversight Research, a yearly award by the Levin Center to promote constructive research into oversight by legislative bodies. The Levin Center Award for Excellence in Oversight Research is designed to encourage, acknowledge, and heighten the visibility of scholarly papers examining important oversight issues at the national, state, tribal, local or international levels.

Stack and Professor Vandenbergh offer a compelling, timely, and original thesis on an important appropriations mechanism long overlooked as a way to create personal incentives for executive branch officials to comply with congressional information requests.
