The Legal Intelligencer: Class Action Lawyers Use Big Win to Create Foundation

Feb 2, 2010

Shannon Duffy reports in today’s The Legal Intelligencer on how LGD has taken proceeds from a major class action win to establish the Langer Grogan Diver Social Justice Fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania Law School to support the work of a graduate entering public interest law.

“When the lawyers at Langer Grogan & Diver were awarded $15 million in attorney fees for their work on a massive consumer class action against Wachovia Bank, they decided to put some of the money to work — in the public interest,” reported Duffy, who noted that this was the first grant to establish a public interest fellowship at Penn Law School.
