If that adage is true, its corollary must be that it takes a legal
community to train a lawyer. In my first year as dean, I was
impressed over and over again by the number of people who
donate their time and talent to the School of Law to enrich our
program and to give back to the profession without asking
remuneration in return.
I decided to create the “Volunteer Honor Roll” to recognize
the generosity of those people. One thing I noticed is that while
many of the people on the list are alumni/ae, there are many
other lawyers and members of the community at large who also
contributed to the effort.
Of course, the risk in creating a list like this is the likelihood
of missing a volunteer and leaving them off the list. I am almost
certain that we missed a couple of people here and there. Please
let me know if your name should be on the list and I will publish
an addendum in the next issue of Perspectives.
To all the people on this list: Thank you very much—we cannot
do it without you.
