Freedom Award & Distinguished Service Awards

May 12, 2016

The Freedom Award/DSA Awards Luncheon is the Alumni Association’s major annual fundraiser. Each year, the Alumni Association selects one distinguished individual to receive the Freedom Award. Recipients of the award have made outstanding contributions to freedom in today’s society. Those honored with a Distinguished Service Award have made outstanding contribution to a career field or personal endeavor. Monies raised at this event are used to fund scholarships for current John Marshall students.

On May 12, 2016, The John Marshall Law School Alumni Association will be hosting its 42nd Freedom & Distinguished Services Awards Dinner, which raises funds solely for student scholarships. John Marshall is known for producing distinguished trial attorneys and judges. Please consider purchasing a sponsorship, table, or ticket in an effort to raise funds for law student scholarships.
