Samuel Pond and Jerry Lehocky Fund Trial Advocacy Scholarship at Temple University Beasley School of Law

November 13, 2013

Once classmates, now law partners, attorneys Samuel H. Pond and Jerry M. Lehocky have found a way to give back to the institution that launched their highly successful careers in law. The partners have established the Pond and Lehocky Scholarship Fund in Trial Advocacy, an award to be given annually to a student with a focus on trial advocacy at Temple University’s Beasley School of Law.


“We share a bond of pride in having attended Temple Law,” says Pond, “and we also share a debt of gratitude for what that education made possible.”


Lehocky agrees. “That gratitude is what prompted us to establish this scholarship. We are excited and honored to be able to provide this yearly award to a Temple Law student who understands and emphasizes the importance of trial advocacy.”


Pond and Lehocky first met in law school and formed a friendship that has flourished ever since. Throughout the years they’ve developed a mutual respect for one another, first as opposing counsel, and later, more deeply, as partners. Both Pond and Lehocky share a passion for advocating for workers’ rights and, as seasoned trial lawyers, espouse the importance of trial advocacy. Their scholarship helps pass the torch to young law students eager to further its rich tradition.


The first scholarship was proudly awarded to Temple Law’s Kyle Garabedian on November 14th.
