Welcome from the Director
Welcome to the Weigand Trust website! Whether you are a prospective applicant, a valued member of our alumni family, part of the national or local legal community, or someone simply interested in the essence of the Weigand Trust, we’re glad you stopped by. I encourage you to explore our site, get to know our current and former scholars, and contact me to get any additional information you desire.
As the Trust’s Director, I am honored to facilitate this dynamic and ground-breaking legal foundation as we shape the State of Kansas’ legal community. Since its inception in 2004, the Trust has provided support in a variety of ways to the best Kansas law students. Today, we’re fortunate to have a rich treasure chest of alumni leading the way in developing a family-like network of excellence and opportunities.
Each year, we strive to add value to what our organization offers, for the betterment of our scholars and, ultimately, the citizens of Kansas. After reviewing this site, I think you’ll agree that it’s exciting to see what happens when you bring the best legal minds in Kansas together!
