A fundraiser honoring Catholic University Law School’s new Dean Daniel F. Attridge raised $65,730.00 dollars on April 11th.  The contributions will support the law school’s general student scholarship fund.
A group of approximately 70 people attended the rooftop reception and dinner at Fiola, a highly-regarded restaurant on Pennsylvania Avenue. The warm and windy evening provided an ideal backdrop for the event, as did the sweeping view in every direction of the nation’s capital.
Guests included members of the law school’s Board of Visitors, who participated in the biannual meeting at the law school the following day; distinguished law school alumni; and a number of the dean’s family members, friends and colleagues from Kirkland & Ellis, the law firm where he spent nearly his entire career.
“We are very appreciative of the generosity of our law school’s supporters,” said Dean Attridge. “CUA Law is a special place whose talented students will directly benefit from the increase to our scholarship fund made possible by our guests.”
