C. Kris Kirkpatrick, Law Center class of 1975, spearheaded the efforts of a group of generous donors who previously made gifts designated for the Law Center's Russell B. Long Memorial Fountain and bronze. Upon completion of the Centennial Plaza project and with instructions from all the donors, surplus donations were used to establish the Russell B. Long/Long Law Firm Scholarship. A portion of the donation qualifies for the Judge Paul B. Landry, Jr. Student Scholarship Matching Gift Incentive Program. The recipient of this scholarship will be chosen by the Law Center Scholarship Committee. The student may retain the scholarship for additional years if funds are available and they continue to meet eligility requirements.
