JBAM offers $1,500 law student scholarship: deadline Jan. 27

The Jewish Bar Association of Michigan (JBAM) will award its annual $1,500 scholarship to a law student who exemplifies the character and values of the late attorney Charles J. Cohen. 

A Michigander at heart, Cohen was a staunch advocate for his clients. An avid supporter of JBAM and the Jewish community, he continually stressed the importance of legal education. It was only fitting that JBAM chose to honor the life and legacy of Charles J. Cohen with this scholarship.

Each applicant must submit: 

1. A detailed letter of interest explaining how they meet award criteria, and any relevant connections and commitments to the Michigan.

2. A resume.

3. An official law school transcript.
