Winter Break Begins for Arizona Law Students

Greetings,

You are receiving this special edition of Wildcat Wednesday Tuesday: Letter of the Law today before the Thanksgiving holiday gets underway. 

In this special week we feature the annual Giving Tuesday campaign to support the college's Huerta Scholars Program. Find out more about our Huerta Scholars and how you can help.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving and giving back to the community, our law students recently participated in Arizona Law Volunteer Day. We had an amazing turnout this year, with over 80 participants, multiple projects, and a big impact, reinvigorating a longstanding College of Law tradition with a new generation of students. We've got pictures below.
 
However you celebrate Thanksgiving, we hope that you keep Arizona Law in mind. For more end-of-year giving opportunities, check the "Around the College" section.

Until the footnotes,
 
Marc 
 
Support the Next Generation of Native Lawyers

Arizona Law is preparing for another successful Huerta Scholarship campaign for Giving Tuesday, this year taking place on December 3, 2019.
 
With your support last year, we raised more than $12,000 in support of Native students attending Arizona Law!
This year our goal is to raise $15,000 in support of Native law students.
The Huerta Scholarship was established in 2014 in honor of Judge Lawrence Huerta
Judge Huerta, a member of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, was the first Native American to graduate from Arizona Law (Class of '53) and be licensed to practice law in Arizona. Throughout his illustrious career, Judge Huerta worked tirelessly to increase access to education for Native students and promote tribal sovereignty.
Arizona Law students are carrying on the living legacy of Judge Huerta by increasing access to education and championing the rights of Native American communities and individuals.
The Huerta Scholarship provides vital support to Native law students attending Arizona Law. Please donate today at:


Double Your Impact
Thanks to the generosity of Arizona Law alumni Cara Wallace ('15), Gabe Galanda ('00), Akilah Kinnison ('JD '12, LLM '13), and Virjinya Torrez ('06), your donations will be matched until Giving Tuesday (December 3) up to $4,000 total.
Double your impact today and you will be entered into a drawing to win two tickets to an Arizona Wildcat basketball game of your choice!
