REST OF SPRING SCHEDULE
Monroe Inker Memorial Scholarship Fund
In honor of the late Monroe Inker, Suffolk University Law School created a fund to provide educational opportunities to recent law graduates, public interest lawyers, legal services lawyers and government lawyers. The Fund is intended to allow attendance at Advanced Legal Studies programs in the areas of family law, guardianship and juvenile justice.
Monroe Inker taught on the Suffolk Law School adjunct faculty, was the co-author of the four volume series Massachusetts Practice Book on Family Law (with Professor Kindregan) now in the Third Edition. Mr. Inker was one of the first faculty members at Suffolk's Advanced Legal Studies program, and participated in many programs thereafter. He annually sponsored a family law essay contest at Suffolk to create interest in scholarship affecting the family.
Contributions to the fund are tax deductible. Checks should be made payable to Suffolk University Inker Fund and sent to Madelyne Cuddeback, Suffolk University Advancement Office, 73 Tremont Street, Boston, MA 02108-4977.
