Donald I. Shrager Memorial Scholarship

Longtime ACBA member Donald I. Shrager, who passed away in 2019, was a Bench-Bar Conference “regular.” Not only was he passionate about the conference, he also was passionate about ensuring equal access to the conference for Black attorneys, who historically have been underrepresented at Bench-Bar and in the legal profession overall.


To honor his father’s memory and to carry on his father’s dedication to the African-American community, his son – ACBA member David Shrager of Shrager Defense Attorneys – launched the Donald I. Shrager Memorial Scholarship in 2022. ​​
