This scholarship was established in memory of Professor Margarate A. Berger by her sons, David Berger, Class of 1989 and Joshua Berger, and family friends. Professor Berger was widely recognized as one of the nation's leading evidence and civil procedure scholars, including pioneering work in the field of scientific evidence. She was an outstanding teacher, mentor and inspiration to many, and a supportive colleague who contributed immeasurably to Brooklyn Law School over her 37-year tenure at the school. Beyond the law, she was a passionate reader, opera goer, Mets fan, gourmet cook, loving family member and treasured friend. The scholarship is to be awarded to a student who demonstrates exceptional achievement in the law of evidence or civil procedure.
