Congratulations Washington University School of Law
During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012, the Washington University Law Annual Fund raised $1,820,045, and, for the second year in a row, the Law School exceeded the aggressive goal for Eliot Society membership established by the University. Members of the Eliot Society (named after Unitarian minister and co-founder of Washington University William Greenleaf Eliot) give at least $1,000 per year to the University. Over the last two years–amidst a swirl of criticism surrounding law schools and uncertainty in the profession–Washington University Law Eliot Society membership has increased by 18.5%. Gifts to the Annual Fund in 2012 increased by 3% over the preceding year. These results are a testament to the loyalty and generosity of alumni who are inspired by the leadership of Law School Dean Kent Syverud and the scholarship and dedication to teaching of its talented faculty.
Capes Sokol Goodman & Sarachan, P.C. is proud of its numerous affiliations with Washington University Law School. Capes Sokol shareholders Sanford J. Boxerman, David V. Capes and Gary R. Sarachan teach classes in the law school, and, of our 23 lawyers, 13 have attended Washington University. Capes Sokol hired more Washington University Law 2011 graduates than any other law firm in the world.
The Washington University Law Eliot Committee and Annual Fund are chaired by Capes Sokol shareholder John S. Meyer, Jr.
The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements.
