A Message from the Director of Alumni Relations, School of Law
In June, with only 27 days left in the 2011 Annual Giving Campaign, I want to extend my gratitude to the Alumni Annual Giving Committee members for their countless hours of service to the School of Law and the alumni community. These committee members strive to secure national recognition of UST Law graduates that is well deserved. The UST alumni community is an incredibly talented and service-oriented group that deserves national recognition among law schools. Thank you to the following committee members that volunteer their service to make national recognition a reality:
