Mark T. Banner Scholarship for Law Students

In 2009, The Richard Linn American Inn of Court formed the Mark T. Banner Scholarship for law students in the name of our late partner. This scholarship is part of The Richard Linn American Inn of Court’s commitment to fostering the development of intellectual property lawyers of high ethics, civility and professionalism, and especially those from diverse backgrounds.

Law students who have entered into a JD program at an ABA-accredited law school in the United States and who will continue in that program through the next year are eligible to apply for the Mark T. Banner Scholarship. Click here to learn more about the application process.
