Building Faculty Strength and Capacity: $5,000,000

The Law School’s faculty includes the world’s leading DNA evidence expert, international human rights leaders, and leading scholars in advocacy, international and domestic arbitration, antitrust and regulatory law, and the legal systems of Russia and former Soviet Republics. These powerful legal minds have challenged our students, elevated the Law School’s profile, and spearheaded the expansion of our interdisciplinary educational programs, including the School of International Affairs.

The Law School can currently offer only six endowed professorships or chairs to support these remarkable individuals in their work and recognize their achievements in the legal community. As The Dickinson School of Law continues to grow in stature and offerings, faculty endowments will allow the Law School to recruit talented scholars to lead our institution and our students.

 


Professor Laurel Terry“During my career, outside funding has made it possible for me to spend my sabbaticals in Europe writing and teaching about legal ethics. Each experience has served as a stepping stone to the next, allowing me to develop expertise that is very important to my profession right now. I am very honored to be named the Feldman scholar. I’ve known Harvey for years. I’m pleased we could create this recognition for his contributions to the school, and I will do my best to live up to that and bring honor to the school and to Harvey.”
