Memory Hold the Door

Established by the Bar and the law school faculty in 1958, Memory Hold the Door honors deceased lawyers and judges who provided distinguished service to the public and the Bar. For each person memorialized, a contribution is made to a law school endowment. Now totaling more than $537,000, the endowments promote the welfare of the legal profession by funding student scholarships, lectures, research and academic programs. Those remembered represent an honor roll of the legal profession and exemplify the qualities of integrity, professionalism and skill required of the bench and Bar.
