JD Class Gift
Every year the Student Bar Association (SBA) raises funds for the 3L class gift. This year’s class of 2017 commissioned an artist from the Cleveland Institute of Art to create an outdoor statue of Lady Justice.
Sitting in the courtyard between Weatherhead and the School of Law, the statue stands over 5 feet tall and is a truly artistic, unique version of Lady Justice.
The class of 2017, led by SBA President Fahreen Velji ’17, raised over $1,600 for the statue, with a participation rate of 55 percent. As in recent years, alumni Robert Reitman ’58, George Aronoff ’58, and James Berick ’58 have generously agreed to match the students’ gifts.
LLM Class Gift
This year’s LLM class raised over $760, which is an unprecedented 76 percent participation from the class. The money raised is for a mural of the law school depicted in “type art.” The mural will be displayed on the back wall of the cafeteria, next to the staircase.
