1911 Society Fellows with Dean Barton at the 2019 reception

1911 Society Fellows

Established in 1996 during the 85th anniversary of Duquesne Law's founding, the 1911 Society was established by alumni who pledged funds to ensure the continued excellence of the legal education offered by Duquesne University School of Law. The Charter of the 1911 Society states that its Fellows will "personally and professionally demonstrate their commitment to the moral and ethical canons embraced by their Law School's mission." The result was millions of dollars raised to build the John E. Murray, Jr., Pavilion.

Today, the 1911 Society Fellows program continues its pledge of excellence by supporting the mission of Duquesne University School of Law through cumulative financial support in excess of $10,000. Donors are recognized in four levels of support, commemorating the buildings that have housed the School of Law since 1911.

  • Fitzsimons Fellow: $10,000--$24,999
  • Rockwell Fellows: $25,000--$49,999
  • Hanley Fellows: $50,000-99,999
  • Second Century Fellows: $100,000 and above

Fellows of the 1911 Society are committed to supporting key initiatives in the School of Law. Your generous gift transforms Duquesne Law and - more importantly - the lives of our students.

Donors are recognized annually at our holiday reception in December. To learn more about the 1911 Society Fellows program, please contact Jeanine DeBor, director of law alumni relations and development.
