Prior to founding the company in 1985, Charles Besser attended the Marquette University Law School. Charlie Besser, a recipient of the prestigious McCahill Award, played for the school’s varsity golf team.

The Marquette University Law School, one of two law schools in the state of Wisconsin, provides prospective students with a number of scholarship opportunities. Each year, between 33 and 50 percent of incoming law students receive merit scholarships from the university. The scholarship amounts range from $2,000 to $10,000 per year, though in some cases merit scholarships can account for full tuition. Students must remain in good academic standing to maintain the scholarship, which the university defines at a grade point average of at least 2.0. The school also works with the American Bar Association (ABA) to provide students with access to the ABA Legal Opportunity Scholarship Fund. These scholarships are worth $5,000 and can be renewed up to two times, for a total of $15,000.
