USC sets Sherman scholarship

Students studying intellectual property eligible for funds

USC Law School, along with friends and colleagues of late entertainment attorney Roger Sherman, has established an academic scholarship in his honor.

The Roger Sherman Memorial Prize will be bestowed each year upon an individual who demonstrates academic promise and dedication to a course of study in the area of Intellectual Property. The first nod will be handed out during the next academic year.

“His legacy will live in perpetuity through the hard work, achievement and dedication of talented students, in whose name Roger’s memory will live on,” said Matthew L. Spitzer, dean of the law school.

Sherman began practicing law in 1960 and remained in active practice until his death in September.
