Rakas, Professor Emeritus Albert S. Scholarship
The Professor Emeritus Albert S. Rakas Scholarship is a fund established in 1989 by Margaret Rakas and friends in memory of her husband, Albert S. Rakas. Dean Rakas had a 28-year distinguished career in the United States Army. After retirement from the Army as a Colonel, Dean Rakas came to the School of Law in 1971 as associate professor and director of Clinical Education. In 1974 he became associate dean and in 1976 was promoted to professor. He served as interim dean of the school from 1979-81 and then resumed his position as associate dean until his retirement in 1984. Because of his outstanding contributions to the School of Law, the title of Professor of Law Emeritus was bestowed on Dean Rakas at the time of his retirement. This scholarship is to be awarded to an evening law student who demonstrates financial need, as determined by the dean of the School of Law.
