Yankwitt LLP is thrilled to announce a newly established scholarship at the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University – the Yankwitt LLP Immediate Impact Scholarship – which will be awarded to an incoming first year student who expresses an interest in social justice and demonstrates financial need.

The intent of the scholarship is to encourage racial and ethnic minority students to apply to law school and to promote diversity within the legal sector where minorities are significantly underrepresented.

“As a White Plains resident and managing partner of a Westchester-based law firm, I am committed to giving back to the community in which I live and work,” shared Russell Yankwitt, who founded the firm in 2009.

Yankwitt, a graduate of the Cornell Law School, has supported Westchester’s only law school for many years by serving on the Board of Visitors, providing internships to students, and financially. “This scholarship is especially important to me and my firm, as it will go to an individual committed to social justice, a core value for the legal community – always, but especially now. I have been fortunate to have the assistance of others, so this is one of the ways I can pay it forward during a time when many individuals and institutions are in dire need of support as a result of COVID-19.”

“This new scholarship will help provide Haub Law students with the opportunity to also pay it forward by advocating for social justice,” said Haub Law Dean Horace Anderson.

In addition to supporting Haub Law, Yankwitt LLP and its attorneys are active in other Westchester-based organizations including Legal Services of the Hudson Valley, for which Yankwitt serves on the board of directors and the firm handles pro bono matters; the Justice Brandeis Law Society; and the Westchester County Bar Association, as well as national organizations such as the Federal Bar Council, on which Yankwitt serves on its executive committee as a vice president.

Pace University's Elisabeth Haub School of Law today announced a scholarship endowment gift of $100,000 from Cassin & Cassin LLP, a law firm specializing in real estate, real estate finance, and private client matters.

The endowment will be used to create a real estate law scholarship, awarded annually to a selected second-year Haub Law student who maintains a minimum 3.0 GPA, demonstrates a financial need, and has an interest in real estate law. Recipients will be selected by the Law School in the summer of each year, with the first scholarship awarded in Fall 2021.

“We are honored by the generosity of Cassin & Cassin LLP in providing this scholarship,” said Haub Law Dean Horace Anderson. “It will lend robust support to students in our program who have an interest in real estate, including those working with our innovative Land Use Law Center to foster the development of sustainable communities and regions through cutting-edge land use strategies.”

Established in 1993, Haub Law’s Land Use Law Center offers conferences, seminars, clinics, academic law school courses, continuing legal education programs, videos and podcasts, and publications and resources on contemporary land use, real estate, and environmental issues.

“We’re delighted to present this endowment to the Elisabeth Haub School of Law to help students who demonstrate the financial need to further their education,” said Joseph M. Cassin, Chairman and Founder of Cassin & Cassin LLP. “As the Firm approaches its 35th anniversary in early 2021, I cannot think of a better way to acknowledge this achievement then by giving back to such a fine institution. Today, and through the years, many Elisabeth Haub School of Law alumni have worked at the Firm, and they’ve all distinguished themselves as excellent attorneys and great contributors to the Cassin culture. We hope this endowment will help educate and nurture the next generations of fine minds the school produces.”
