The late Mary Johnson Lowe graduated from Brooklyn Law School in 1954 and had been the first Black student to serve as editor-in-chief of the Brooklyn Law Review and the second Black woman appointed to the federal judiciary.

Lowe is now being honored with a new scholarship in her name funded by a pledge of $100,000 from Michael T. Cahill, Brooklyn Law School president, Joseph Crea dean and professor of law, and his wife, Rosalyn Scaff. The scholarship is intended to recognize Lowe’s lifelong dedication to equal justice and civil rights in the courtroom and in the community, according to the school’s announcement.
