Last Friday we had the opportunity to say thank you to some of our donors and partners who have made a direct investment in the future of our students by endowing or supporting a scholarship. 

Throughout the year, many of our alumni and friends come back to campus to participate in the education of our students.  For example, on Monday our students had an opportunity to hear from the attorneys at Hagens Berman about recent developments in sports law. 
Tomorrow, our students will have an opportunity to speak to alumna Denise Jackson ('90) in our Leaders in the Law speaker series.  
Whether you are giving of your time, your talents, or your resources, we thank you for being part of our community.
Until the footnotes,

2016-2017 Scholarship Lunch

A scholarship is a life-changing investment in an individual and an investment in the public good.

Scholarship funds help to bring great students from diverse backgrounds to join and to represent the Arizona Law community.
On Friday, donors and partners were able hear the stories of our students. And while each student was present because people respect and believe in what they have done and what will they do -- no story was the same.
" There is no such thing as a traditional student.
- Andrea Middleton, a Kenyon Pyle Vance Scholar
" I am the first in my family to attend a four-year college.
- Jesus Alonso, a Gonzales - Villarreal Scholar
" It's the contributions of alumni such as yourselves that help to allow that 
passionate belief within us to  continue to grow and foster.
- Jonathan Rich, a George Rountree Scholar
These are the moments that matter. 

Whether you established the scholarship, contributed to the fund, or were a recipient who gave back, thank you. 

Thank you again to all of our supporters who attended and to those of you who were unable to make it. Your generosity continues to change lives and make a difference throughout the college and the profession.

Professor of Practice Sheldon Trubatch and student Jessica Moore. 

Paul Charlton, Kristian Garibay, and the
Hon. Stephen McNamee. 

We can never say thank you too often.
