Leading Change: The Harvey Levine Scholarship Fund

Funding a scholarship is a meaningful way to give back to the law school​ and serves​ a vital role in shaping the quality​, diversity, and ​caliber of student graduating ​from ​USD. Read more about Named Scholarships

The Harvey Levine Scholarship Fund was created by David S. Casey, '74 (JD), Adam B. Levine, Gabriel and Alyssa Mass, Virginia C. Nelson, '79 (JD), and Jeffrey D. Phair, '80 (JD). Harvey Levine was a brilliant lawyer and a gifted professor at USD School of Law. Levine was committed to representing the little guys, described as the "model for how a plaintiff's lawyer should be," selective with cases, lacking bombast in the court and putting the client's interests first. The scholarship is awarded to a student with demonstrated financial need and a commitment to advocacy.

The Harvey Levine Scholarship accepts ongoing contributions. On February 15, 2017, USD will be hosting a reception at the San Diego Bar Association featuring Bill Shernoff, Harvey's former law partner. Alumni, friends of USD and the Levine family are encouraged to attend and support the scholarship fund created in Harvey's honor.
