This scholarship was endowed jointly by a legacy from Sherman Raphael, a 1959 graduate of Tulane Law School, and by gifts from other members of the class of 1959. Mr. Raphael practiced law in New Orleans until his retirement in 1993. He was president of the Academy of New Orleans Trial Lawyers in 1972-73 and national president of the Tulane Law Alumni Association in 1977-78. The income from this scholarship fund is used to support deserving law students at Tulane who demonstrate promise in their fields of endeavor.
