UDC Law 2017 Annual Gala June 1 2017

UDC David A. Clarke School of Law hosted its first-ever Gala on Thursday, June 1st at the UDC Student Center to showcase our school – DC’s only public law school – and its impact on the community. Mayor Muriel Bowser, DC Council Chairman Phil Mendelson, Ward 3 Councilmember Mary Cheh, former US Attorney General Eric Holder and other prominent leaders of the community joined us to celebrate the school and honor two outstanding attorneys below who embody the school’s missions of public interest and diversity.

The Gala was a fundraiser, and it successfully raised almost half a million dollars for the school’s Summer Public Interest Fellowship Program and Scholarship Funds. See the recap of the event here.
