Each year, two students from University of California, Hastings College of the Law are named recipients of the Pfaff, Gill & Ports, Ltd. Trial Lawyer Scholarship. Bruce Pfaff is a 1979 graduate and founded the scholarship to encourage students who are interested in civil trial practice.
On Friday, Bruce and Deborah Pfaff awarded six students at Moraine Valley Community College Riley Spreadbury Scholarships. The scholarships are in honor of Bruce's former client, a young woman who has achieved many great things after much adversity. Riley was valedictorian at Moraine Valley in 2016 and appreciates all the school did for her.
Last year, Bruce Pfaff established the Pfaff Trial Lawyer Scholarship program at his alma mater - University of California, Hastings College of Law, to award two scholarships annually to exceptional students interested in becoming civil trial lawyers.
