Jack Wenders Scholar Award

October 1, 2008

In August the Institute for Justice awarded the first Jack Wenders Scholar Award to litigation intern Max Leeds.  The Wenders Award, created last winter as a memorial to IJ donor Jack Wenders, is designed to recognize a student who embodies the “IJ Way” by having a positive, open, resilient, principled and entrepreneurial attitude as well as a commitment to real-world results.  Max, who now attends UCLA School of Law, earned the $1,000 award by demonstrating a sincere enthusiasm for helping IJ attorneys and staff accomplish our mission in any way that he could, no matter how small.  As a result, he made a big difference this summer in our efforts to advance individual liberty.
