  The Justinian Society and Foundation Announce the Richard F. Furia, Esquire Scholarship Open to Second Year Law School Students

PHILADELPHIA (January 2013) – The Justinian Society and Foundation announce the formation of the Richard F. Furia, Esquire Scholarship and scholarship committee co-chaired by attorneys Gino Benedetti and Justin Moriconi. The Justinian Society, founded in 1935, serves Philadelphia’s Italian-American attorneys and judges. Richard F. Furia, Esquire is the co-founder of The Justinian Foundation, which helps Philadelphia-area law school students defray the cost of third year tuition.  


Before Richard Furia’s untimely death in 2011, he requested that memorial donations be sent to The Justinian Foundation led by its president, Barbara Capozzi.


For more than 30 years, Richard Furia was an active member of The Justinian Society. He followed in his father, the Honorable Edward W. Furia’s footsteps, both having served as chancellor.  The only family to have three generations serve as the Society’s chancellors, Richard Furia’s daughter, Gina Furia Rubel, Esquire, also served from 2008-2010. Richard Furia was also very active in the Orders Sons of Italy in America Commission for Social Justice, fighting against stereotypes that sought to disenfranchise Italian-Americans.  


The Justinian Society of Philadelphia and its Foundation invite any law school student in his/her second year to submit a 750 – 1,000 word essay answering:  As an attorney, what will you do to fight against stereotyping and defamation of Italian-Americans in particular and people of all races, religions and cultures in general? All submissions must be sent to the attention of Justin Moriconi, Esq., either by e-mail or regular mail no later than April 1, 2013, 5:00 p.m. EST
