PASS GO, COLLECT PRIZES  From autographs of the nine Supreme Court justices who decided Brown v. Board of Education, to tickets for a jazz concert at Lincoln Center, guests at the Monopoly-themed 36th Student Funded Fellowships (SFF) Auction had a wide range of items on which to bid March 19, 2015. The live and silent auction portions of the evening, in addition to matching donations pledged by the Wein-Hirshon Charitable Foundation, raised more than $58,000, which will be used to provide grants to Michigan Law students who plan to work at public-interest jobs during their 1L summers. The SFF Auction is held each year in conjunction with the first Admitted Students Preview Weekend.
