The scholarships made possible by the generous donations of Jazz 4 Justice have brought a higher level of talent to the Jazz Department. According to Professor Jim Carroll , “The partnership between George Mason University and the Fairfax Law Foundation is a tribute to what can be accomplished when we join hands. We are indebted to the Law Foundation for its support of our music programs and students.” The Music Scholarship fund at GMU assists students who would otherwise be unable to graduate without the financial aid provided. Dustin Mollock, a graduate of the GMU Music Program said that “Thanks to the scholarship I received from Jazz 4 Justice I was able to complete my degree in Jazz Studies at George Mason University and am now a Teaching Fellow at the University of North Texas.” “We’re pleased to be able to showcase some very talented local artists and to support the Foundation’s critical educational and charitable programs all in one very festive evening,” said Edward L. Weiner , President of the Fairfax Bar Association. Jazz 4 Justice was Mr. Weiner’s brainchild back in 2000 when he was attending a recital at the GMU Department of Music. He was impressed by the music, but distressed by the small audience. As a Past President of the Fairfax Law Foundation, he saw an opportunity for these two organizations to work together. Over the years, the Jazz 4 Justice has raised more than $150,000 for the Fairfax Law Foundation. The Fairfax Law Foundation, the charitable arm of the Fairfax Bar Association, provides an array of educational and charitable services that benefit the Northern Virginia community. It operates a Pro Bono Program that provides legal services for Fairfax County residents who are less privileged, Wills on Wheels, the Fairfax Public Law Library, programs for victims of domestic violence, and various educational programs for Fairfax County students including court tours for all eighth grade students in the County and counseling for at-risk teens. This event has received an award from the American Bar Association as well as an award from the Virginia State Bar for being an innovative fundraising program. Because of Jazz 4 Justice’s success at George Mason University, other universities and local bar associations are being encouraged to foster this unique partnership between education, music, and law.
