A Message from David Ginsberg, President


Dear Alumni,


Your Law Alumni Association board members and I hope that you will support our law school by participating in this year’s Law Firm Challenge. As you know, Mason ranks among the top law schools in many key categories. As alumni, we have a responsibility to support our law school in whatever way we can, especially with annual financial support. The Law Firm Challenge is a great way to support Mason Law and have fun while doing so. Not only could your firm earn some good-natured “bragging rights” and publicity, but you also will help raise the law school’s alumni participation rate—a key metric of Tier I law schools like George Mason.

As of October 1, alumni at over 30 participating firms have volunteered as team captains to help and encourage their Mason Law colleagues to make a gift, thereby helping their firms to reach 100% alumni participation. While large contributions are always welcome, the name of the game is participation—every Mason Law alumnus and alumna at the participating firms giving something back to the School of Law.

Firms that achieve 100% Mason Law Alumni participation will earn recognition in a full-page advertisement in Virginia Lawyers Weekly in fall 2010. Alumni at those firms will be invited to a reception with Dean Polsby during fall 2010.

Your participation in the Law Firm Challenge is another chapter in the Mason Law success story. Join your fellow alumni in accepting the Challenge. Thank you for all you do for Mason Law. Hope to see you soon!
