Kaye Commercial and Federal Litigation Scholarship by the Commercial and Federal Litigation Section of the New York State Bar Association. The scholarship is awarded to up to five female litigators to cover the cost of tuition to attend a future session of the section’s Commercial Litigation Academy.

With a particular focus on litigating commercial cases efficiently, attendants receive training that enhances participant’s skills in all aspects of commercial litigation, from drafting pleadings and seeking injunctive relief, alternative dispute resolution options, disclosure and discovery (including expert discovery and e-Discovery), through trial and appeal.
