Ursuline College has created The Avery Friedman Human Rights Scholarship
for students in its Legal Studies Program. Avery has served Ursuline as Visiting Distinguished Professor in Constitutional Law, teaching Women and the Law, Civil Rights, Employment Law, Constitutional Law and Law and the Media. The Ursuline Sisters’ motto “to transform society through contemplation, justice and compassion” has been the centerpiece of his instruction. His students find in Avery both an intellectual and moral model of the good that can be done through the law.
The Wall Street Journal calls Avery Friedman a “walking reference source” on civil rights law. He has lectured at over three dozen law schools including Stanford, Berkeley, Duke, Michigan, Tulane and the University of Texas and joins the likes of Jesse Owens and Gloria Steinem as an inductee into the Ohio Civil Rights Hall of Fame. He has been recognized in TIME, The New York Times
and USA Today
as a nationally distinguished civil rights lawyer and law professor. Referred to as a “true freedom fighter” by the NAACP, Avery has been CNN’s Legal Analyst every Saturday for 16 years with an audience of over 3,000,000 viewers coast-to-coast each week.
Thanks to hundreds of individual donations and market growth, our scholarship now exceeds over $100,000. For more information contact Richard Konisiewicz at 440-646-8355 or Richard.Konisiewicz@ursuline.edu
