Class of 2012 Dedicates Trophy Case Donated as 3L Class Gift

On Wednesday, September 5, alumni leaders of the Class of 2012 gathered to dedicate the trophy case donated as the 2012 3L Class Gift to the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University. Interim Dean Eric Lane joined with Student Bar Association Class Senator Fauzia Amlani, Student Bar Association Class Senator Alfredo Tapia, Moot Court Board President and Editor-in-Chief Jessica Miller and Moot Court Board Director of Business Affairs Melissa Danowski, for the ceremony.

The trophy case was purchased with funds raised for the 3L Class Gift, an initiative of the Student Bar Association. Each gift of $20.12 to the Annual Fund entitled the donor to a congratulatory message in the graduation program. More than 40 students and 20 faculty, administration and staff members contributed.

The trophy case seems an especially appropriate gift in light of the unprecedented successes of the Moot Court and Trial teams this year. The Trial Team was named co-champion for Region 2 in the 37th Annual National Trial Competition. The Moot Court Team was named Regional Champion at the Region II Rounds of the 62nd Annual National Moot Court Competition and went on to represent Hofstra Law at the National Final Rounds.

The gift will serve as a lasting tribute to Hofstra Law’s past, current and future accomplishments. “Every trophy is a testament to the accomplishments of Hofstra Law students,” says Tapia. “My hope is that the trophy case not only instills pride in every law student that lays their eyes upon it, but that it also motivates them to strive to set new records.”

The case is located outside the computer lab on the first floor of Kushner Hall. Hofstra Law is grateful to the Class of 2012 for their generous gift.
