Franklin & Prokopik Counsel Attorneys Kiran Sharma Rosen and Imoh E. Akpan will serve as co-chairs for this year’s Fannie Angelos Program for Academic Excellence’s Annual Gala. Now in its third year, the gala will feature a cocktail hour followed by dinner, drinks and dancing and will be held at the Belvedere Hotel on November 17. It is anticipated that over 250 Maryland attorneys, judges, and other industry leaders will be attending this exciting celebration.
The Fannie Angelos Program is a collaboration between the UB School of Law, Maryland HBCUs and the Princeton Review. The program aims to help students score high on the LSAT, excel in law school and increase diversity in the legal profession. It is comprised of two sub-programs: the Fanny Angelos Scholars, which elects eight juniors and seniors from Maryland historically black colleges and universities (HBCU) as Scholars, and the LSAT Award Program, which gives 80 students, including the 8 Scholars, a $1,399 LSAT award to take a 16-week Law School Admission Test (LSAT)Prep class.
