The MTYKL Foundation expresses our appreciation to the donors who contributed to our Garrick Lew Fund. Because of their support the MTYKL Foundation was able to provide a grant to the AABA Law Foundation to create the Garrick Lew Scholarship, which awards $10,000 to a third-year law student committed to a criminal defense practice after graduation.

In memory of our dear friend and former law firm partner, Garrick S. Lew, the Minami Tamaki Yamauchi Kwok & Lee Foundation and Garrick’s family have established the Garrick S. Lew Legacy Fund.
The Fund will be used to support organizations and causes that continue Garrick’s legacy of advocating for our Asian American communities, AAPIs in the legal profession, and criminal defense. The MTYKL Foundation and Garrick’s family will collaborate on the Fund’s operation.
On February 17, 2017, the Minami Tamaki Yamauchi Kwok & Lee (MTYKL) Foundation and the AABA Law Foundation announced a new scholarship for law students in remembrance of Garrick. The Garrick S. Lew Scholarship awards $10,000 to a third-year law student committed to a criminal defense practice after graduation. The scholarship is funded through a grant from the MTYKL Foundation’s Garrick S. Lew Legacy Fund to the AABA Law Foundation, which administers the scholarship and selects the recipients.
