Chris J. Coschignano/Sahn Ward Coschignano Touro Law Center Scholarship Announced

Sahn Ward Coschignano, PLLC has announced the creation of the Chris J. Coschignano/Sahn Ward Coschignano, PLLC Scholarship, which will be awarded to a second–year law student at Touro Law Center interested in practicing in the area of land use or real estate law. The amount of the scholarship is $25,000.

Mr. Coschignano, a 1990 graduate of Touro Law Center, concentrates his practice in the areas of zoning and land use planning, real estate law and transactions. He has handled some of the most complex zoning and land use planning projects on Long Island which have been recognized by numerous organizations for their smart growth and proper planning objectives. In addition, he is a four–term Councilman for the Town of Oyster Bay. Prior to being elected Town Councilman in 2001, he served as Counsel to the Town’s Zoning Board of Appeals.

Last year, Mr. Coschignano was honored by Touro Law Center as its "Alumni of the Month" for the month of May and as the recipient of the Keith Romaine Elected Official of the Year for his interest in and passion for government.

"I am proud to collaborate with the Firm in offering this scholarship to a Touro Law Center student who is seeking to pursue a career in either land use or real estate law," Mr. Coschignano said. "I had a great academic experience during my time at Touro, which helped to prepare me for a career in public service and as a land use attorney, and I am pleased to join with my Firm in making this scholarship available to a worthy student."

"We are grateful for every donor who helps make a positive impact in the lives of our students," said Dean Harry Ballan, of the Touro Law Center. "Scholarship support is a main focus of our strategic fundraising. The new gifts will go a long way to help both prospective students access an affordable legal education and help to reduce the debt-load of existing students."
