Dean Karen H. Rothenberg

The Daily Record Law students eager to balance the scales of justice are stymied by crushing student loan debt that makes it impossible to launch a public interest career (starting pay at the Legal Aid Bureau, for example, is $40,000). One solution: Loan forgiveness programs that take the sting out of repaying six-figure loans in return for a commitment to work at a public interest firm. An even better solution: The University of Maryland School of Law's Gilbert and Jaylee Mead Public Interest Scholarships, which support an entire legal education, as well as two summer stipends of $5,000, to let the lawyers-in-training get hands-on experience at public interest organizations. The Mead Scholarship, funded by UM Law alumnus Gilbert D. Mead, provides $15,000 in tuition for three years of law school for an incoming student. "I'm so gratified the Meads share our vision to make our students' commitment to public interest a reality," said Karen H. Rothenberg, JD, dean of the School of Law.
