2L Lisa Goldstein named Steele Scholar in Business

Mason Law student Lisa Goldstein has been named a Steele Scholar in Business Law.

The Steele Scholar Program is named in honor of Chief Justice Myron T. Steele of the Delaware Supreme Court, a noted business jurist who also has developed a substantial body of corporate legal scholarship. The program is administered by the Corporate Federalism Initiative (CFI) at Mason Law, which is directed by Professor J.W. Verret.

Steele Scholars are selected based on a competitive process involving academic performance and submission of an article. During their terms, Steele Scholars receive a substantial stipend and commit to writing an article of their own, as well as assisting faculty researchers at the CFI in their investigations into corporate law and financial regulation.

Goldstein, a graduate of the University of Vermont with a BA in economics/environmental studies, began her studies at Mason Law in fall 2010 and is currently a second-year law student.

Those interested in applying for the Steele Scholar Program should contact Professor Verret.
