Hon. Beverly Reid O'Connell Scholarships
Judge O’Connell’s family, in conjunction with the Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles (WLALA) and Pepperdine University School of Law, have announced the formation of two scholarship funds named in honor of Judge Beverly Reid O'Connell. As you all likely know, these are two organizations that were very near and dear to Judge O’Connell.
