Rick Fischer '70 recently made a generous gift of $125,000 to create an endowed scholarship fund. The scholarship will help support a student who attended the University of San Francisco and who, after one year at UC Hastings, has placed in the top 10 percent of his or her class.
"Scholarships play a vital role in helping to alleviate our students' financial burden," says Dean Frank H. Wu. "We are most grateful to Rick for his vision and generosity."
Fischer, who is a partner in Morrison & Foerster's Washington, D.C., office, specializes in retail financial services, privacy, and data security.
"I found joy in the study of the law at UC Hastings and a successful practice as a result of that education," says Fischer, who served on the editorial board of the Hastings Law Journal. "I am pleased to be able to create the scholarship fund to give others a similar educational opportunity."
