Judge Ron Albers Scholarship

The Judge Ron Albers Scholarship recognizes a student’s contribution to QLaw, as well as the LGBTQIA+ community more broadly. Judge Albers is a 1974 graduate of the Law School, and is currently a judge of the San Francisco County Superior Court. He is the first openly gay judge appointed by a republican governor. Judge Albers was instrumental in creating San Francisco’s Community Justice Center, and is a founding member of Bay Area Lawyers for Individual Freedom. Judge Albers has compassionately advocated for improving defendant outcomes, especially for those experiencing mental illness or drug addiction.

This scholarship is also made possible by QLaw. QLaw donated to the Judge Ron Albers Scholarship in his honor. Judge Albers was the keynote speaker for the QLaw Gala last year.
