MWL Foundation: Leslie Altman Memorial Scholarship

Leslie Altman

Leslie Altman

Minnesota Women Lawyers Foundation established the MWL Foundation Leslie Altman Memorial Law Student Scholarship (Scholarship) to honor a mentor, colleague, friend and true champion of women lawyers. The scholarship recognizes the accomplishments of Leslie Altman who achieved outstanding recognition as a lawyer and served as an unconditional advocate for women in the profession and in a just society, until her passing in the fall of 2012. She paved the way for the success of countless other women attorneys and women law students. Through this scholarship, Leslie’s commitments can continue to encourage others to advocate for the advancement of women in the profession and in a just society and to open new opportunities for women throughout the profession.


In Leslie's honor, the goal of the MWL Foundation Leslie Altman Memorial Law Student Scholarship is to provide aid to students attending a Minnesota law school who demonstrate an interest in furthering the mission of Minnesota Women Lawyers, “To advance the success of women in the legal profession and strive for a just society.”
