Founding partners of Sam & Ash, LLP, Sam Mirejovsky and Ash Watkins, both studied at Chapman University, Dale E. Fowler School of Law. As successful lawyers, they were able to contribute one of the largest gifts in the law school’s history — supporting an in-house bar preparation program, the Sam & Ash Chapman Law Scholarship, and the Sam & Ash Student Lounge.
“There’s nothing I want to do more than provide an environment that enhances student success here at Chapman.”
As a 2014 graduate, Ash vividly remembers the stress of law school. But the student lounge was always a happy place. While students could relax and shoot pool there, Ash recalls it as a space for collaboration with peers, like Sam.
In recognition of their gift, Fowler School of Law held a celebration in March of 2020 to unveil the Sam & Ash Student Lounge and Rocky’s Rec Room.
