The University of Baltimore School of Law’s Fannie Angelos Program for Academic Excellence represents a revolutionary approach to meeting the need for a more diverse legal profession. This effort begins with legal education – and the Fannie Angelos Program for Academic Excellence, whose work relies on grants and donations, has created a groundbreaking way to make it happen.

The program is named for the late Fannie Angelos, who graduated from UB Law in 1951. In recognition of her impressive legal career, her tireless advocacy for equal opportunity, and her extraordinary character and spirit, in 2013 UB Law named its prestigious legal education preparatory program, the Fannie Angelos Program for Academic Excellence, in her honor. She took an active role in the program, enthusiastically serving as a mentor to the students, and meeting with them to discuss how to succeed and overcome personal and institutional barriers. Her passion, spirit, and courage continue to inspire UB law students to pursue their dreams.

“Fannie Angelos was a trailblazer for the thousands of women who have attended the University of Baltimore School of Law in the years since she graduated,” says UB School of Law Dean Ronald Weich. “She was deeply committed to UB and its students until the very end of her remarkable life.”

You can help supporting this valuable program by attending the 5th Annual Fannie Angelos Program Gala on Thursday, November 8, 2018, at Baltimore’s historic Belvedere Hotel. Guests will enjoy dinner in an opulent setting and an array of speakers from throughout Maryland’s legal community.
