Why Marina Kats Selected Temple University Beasley School of Law

Philadelphia businesswoman and lawyer Marina Kats, a three-time graduate of Temple University, was elected a member of the University Board of Trustees for Temple University in December 2019. Kats is a 1985 graduate of Temple University and a 1998 graduate of Temple Law School, to which she returned in 1995 to earn a prestigious LL.M. in Trial Advocacy.

A native of Kiev, Ukraine, when Kats arrived in the U.S. she had only a dream – she did not even speak the language. Her education at Temple University and Temple Law School enabled her to achieve that dream and more, joining the first set of women to receive the LL.M. degree nationally. She has established this scholarship to support Temple Law students who, like her, are pursuing their dream of becoming attorneys.
