The American Bar Association is accepting applications for a Forum on Franchising scholarship established in memory of the late Greensfelder, Hemker & Gale partner John Baer.

John Baer headshotIn October 2015, the ABA Forum on Franchising established the John R. F. Baer Scholarship for International Civility and Professionalism. The scholarship will be awarded to an attorney who demonstrates Baer’s tradition of exceptional leadership and civility in franchise law, with an emphasis on international law. Baer, who was a member of Greensfelder’s Chicago office, died in 2015. He was the first recipient of the Forum's prestigious Lewis G. Rudnick Award in 2009 and was a member of the Forum’s governing committee from 2003 to 2006.
