Stewart & Lysaght Recipients

The Stewart & Lysaght Scholars Award, named in honor of the co-founders of the Dual JD Program—Professor George Stewart of University of Windsor Faculty of Law and Professor Leon Lysaght of University of Detroit Mercy School of Law—financially supports exceptional Dual JD students each year.

Students in the Dual JD Program join a community committed to transnational law, social justice, access, diversity, equity, and inclusion. Both Detroit Mercy Law and Windsor Law are committed to enhancing the diversity of the legal profession and advancing justice on both sides of the US-Canada border and throughout the world. In furtherance of the law schools’ joint commitment to these areas, recipients selected for the incoming class of 2022 will include exceptional students who identify as Black or Indigenous who have strong interests in transnational law and social justice and aspire to pursue transnational social justice careers following graduation.

Recipient announcement coming soon.
