Grateful SHU Students Thank Walsh for its Bar Preparation Support

July 2, 2018 in Firm News

Every lawyer who has ever taken the bar exam will tell you that preparing for the test is a full-time job.  Yet, for many recent law school grads, this is not financially feasible. For deserving graduates of Seton Hall University School of Law, this economic burden has been lifted by the creation of a Bar Prep Assistance Fund gifted by the law firm of Walsh Pizzi O’Reilly Falanga LLP.

In the fall of 2018, Walsh generously committed $100,000 to Seton Hall Law to create a Bar Prep Assistance Fund that is providing financial assistance to recent graduates during their bar examination preparation. And this May, students were able to avail themselves of Walsh’s munificence to prepare for the test.

One 2018 Seton Hall graduate wrote to thank the firm for its monetary support:

“As an evening student, I worked throughout law school, but am leaving my job this month to focus solely on bar preparation.  Your generous support will help me cover expenses while I am studying full time for the bar exam this summer.”

In an additional note of gratitude to the firm, another 2018 graduate wrote:

“…thanks to you, I can dedicate my time solely to the curriculum that (the bar review course) is offering and put myself into the best position to pass the Bar on the first attempt…. Your donations are immensely generous…”

“This is a simple way to pay it forward in recognition of all of those who helped us,” Liza M.Walsh previously said of giving to her alma mater when she and the Walsh firm launched the endowment. “Knowing we can make a difference brings us incredible joy.”
