Donor Societies

The 1911 Society

Founded during the School of Law's 85th anniversary in 1996, the 1911 Society is a "select group of highly dedicated individuals who (had) joined together to guarantee a new birth in vitality, resources, accomplishment and achievement to Duquesne University School of Law". The Charter of the 1911 Society proclaims that the law for a Duquesne graduate is "a way to perfect society, to bring about the greatest good for the greatest number of people. Law is a profession of service. The original founders knew this and The Fellows of the 1911 Society re-affirm this."

The 1911 Society includes those individuals who have given a total of $10,000 to the School of Law.
