Erica B. Cohen, a 2L, and Rachel Weislow, a 3L, received scholarships at the Louis D. Brandeis Law Society Fourth Annual Award Luncheon on April 16.
Cohen, president of the law school’s Health Law Society, a member of the Drexel Law Review and a co-organizer of the school’s recent conference on tissue and organ donation, received the Mayer Horowitz Scholarship. A graduate of Ohio University, Cohen led the largest bone-marrow donation drive in U.S. history while she studied there, registering more than 2,400 donors on the campus in 2009.
The Louis D. Brandeis Law Society Scholarship went to Weislow, the captain of the school’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Team, which won the American Bar Association Regional Representation in Mediation Competition and is competing for the national title in April. The president of the Jewish Law Student Association, Weislow has provided pro bono service thought the Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project and is completing a year-long clinic with the Defender Association of Philadelphia.
The scholarships represented two of the five the society awarded this year.
