Press Release
July 23, 2014

Miami, FL – Bilzin Sumberg Baena Price & Axelrod LLP is pleased to announce its $50,000 donation to the University of Miami School of Law, which will be used to create the Bilzin Sumberg Baena Price & Axelrod Scholars program. Two scholarships will be awarded each year to academically qualified second or third-year law students, each of whom will have a cumulative academic average within the top 10% of his/her class. The School of Law will use $10,000 to award two $5,000 scholarships each year.

Founded in 1926, the University of Miami School of Law is consistently recognized as one of the top law schools in the country, and many of the firm's attorneys are UM Law Alumni. The firm's long-standing relationship with the University was ultimately an important factor in donating the gift.

Bilzin Sumberg routinely volunteers its time and resources through its charitable giving program, Bilzin Sumberg Cares, a community involvement initiative that provides our attorneys, staff and their families with opportunities to work together to benefit charitable organizations in the South Florida community. Now in its seventh year, Bilzin Sumberg Cares has partnered with organizations including the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America, Miami-Dade Special Olympics, Voices for Children Foundation, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Miami, United Way of Miami-Dade, and numerous other non-profit organizations.
