The late Martin J. Nash's family and friends have established a scholarship in his memory at the University of Miami School of Law, his alma mater.
Nash passed away in February after a long career as a tax attorney.
The Martin J. Nash Memorial Scholarship Fund will provide financial assistance to students in the graduate program in taxation, and the recipients will be known as Martin J. Nash Scholars.
“The law school was important to Marty, and Marty was very important to the law school and particularly the graduate tax program,” said Patricia A. Brown, director of the graduate program in taxation. “This wonderful legacy will support some of our best students as they prepare to make their own mark on the practice of tax.”
A native of Miami Beach, Nash was a two-time alumnus of UM. He received his accounting degree in 1958 and his J.D. degree in 1961. While a student at Miami Law, Nash was the research editor for the University of Miami Law Review. Nash was recognized as “Tax Lawyer of the Year” by the Tax Section of The Florida Bar and served on the advisory board of the Heckerling Institute on Estate Planning. He also taught for many years in Miami Law’s graduate program in taxation.
