Matthew Kriegsman '14 has been selected as the 2014 recipient of the Mark Whitlock Scholarship.
The Whitlock Scholarship was established by the friends and family of Mark Whitlock '10, who passed away from brain cancer when he was a student at Cardozo. Mark’s family sought to celebrate his joyous spirit and vitality with this scholarship. It is designed to recognize an outstanding, third-year J.D. student who, through the force of individual effort, energy, spirit and initiative, contributes to and/or expands and strengthens student life and community at Cardozo.
Matthew is the founder of Cardozo's Student Mentor Program and is the Co-Founder of the Cardozo Book Loan Program for students in financial need and the Cardozo Apparel Store. He also served as a class Senator and eventually as Vice President of the Student Bar Association, chairing the Student Life Committee during the 2013-2014 academic year.
Matthew also received the Jacob Burns Medal and the Cardozo Service and Achievement Award for his efforts throughout law school. He graduated with a J.D. from Cardozo in 2014, and is currently pursuing an LL.M. at Cardozo in Dispute Resolution and will be graduating in January of 2015.
Congratulations to Matthew!
