Wiggin and Dana and the Connecticut Bar Association Create Scholarship in Memory Of William G. Millman, Jr.

December 3, 2004

Wiggin and Dana LLP and the Connecticut Bar Association’s Antitrust & Trade Regulation Section have created the William G. Millman, Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund.  The scholarship fund was created in memory of Bill Millman, who died on March 26, 2000, while serving as chair of the CBA’s Antitrust & Trade Regulation Section.  Millman, who was a partner in Wiggin and Dana LLP in New Haven, was 42 years old.  CBA’s Antitrust Section and Wiggin and Dana each contributed $5,000 to the scholarship fund.


The Community Foundation of Greater New Haven administers the endowed scholarship fund that provides scholarships to Connecticut residents who will attend a four-year college, with a first preference for a student who has been accepted to or is currently enrolled as an undergraduate student at University of Notre Dame, located in Notre Dame, Indiana, and who professes a good-faith intention to attend law school and return to Connecticut after graduation to practice law.  The Foundation anticipates an annual scholarship of between $1,000 and $1,500.


Millman was a 1979 graduate of the University of Notre Dame and a 1982 graduate of Georgetown University Law School.  Bill became an associate upon graduation from law school and a partner in 1990.


Millman distinguished himself in significant matters of corporate law and litigation, including major asset purchase and sale transactions.  


Anyone who would like to make a donation to the William G. Millman, Jr.  Scholarship fund should contact Robert M. Langer at (860) 297-3724 or Linda L. Randell at (203) 498-4322. Both Langer and Randell are former chairs of the CBA’s Antitrust and Trade Regulation Section.
