The Law School community faculty, staff, and students are invited to a short ground-blessing ceremony in connection with construction of the new Eck Hall of Law November 9th, at 3:15 p.m. The ceremony will be held at a canopy set up for this purpose on the perimeter of the construction site.
The ground-blessing ceremony is scheduled during the visit of the members of the Law School Advisory Council, a number of whom contributed generously to the building project. Father John Coughlin of our faculty will give the blessing. We are hoping that our president, provost and executive vice-president Father John Jenkins, Dr. Tom Burish, and Dr. John Affleck-Graves will be able to join us at the ceremony. The ceremony should last about 20 minutes. Attire is regular class day.
Following the ceremony, all members of the Law School community are invited to a reception in the Student Lounge. I hope that you will be able to join us as we celebrate the commencement of our building project.
