The John Sherman Myers Society, American University Washington College of Law's most prestigious annual giving society, was established to honor former Dean John Sherman Myers and his wife, Alvina Reckman Myers, who dedicated their professional lives and personal wealth to AUWCL and our students. Since its inception three decades ago, the Myers Society has had a visible impact on AUWCL students by providing critical funding for scholarships, technological developments, facilities, academic initiatives, and student services.

AUWCL provides our exceptional students with the tools necessary to be successful in their careers. Many former students turned alumni appreciate the opportunities given to them and understand the importance of giving back to the AUWCL community.

As a member of this great community, you are invited to join the Myers Society by contributing $1,500 annually or more to AUWCL. With your commitment, you will become an important part of a community of donors who make it possible for AUWCL to deliver the highest caliber of legal education to our students.

Beyond the benefit of knowing that your financial support is preparing future members of the legal profession for a rewarding career, other benefits include: an invitation to a formal dinner with Dean Camille Nelson recognizing your generosity, networking opportunities with Myers Society and GOLD (Graduates of the Last Decade) Society members, and added opportunities to mentor students.

Thank you for your commitment to sustaining AUWCL's tradition of excellence as an internationally recognized force in the field of legal education.
