Auction Success!

Thanks to everyone who came out to support the public interest community at Michigan Law at last night’s 2014 SFF Auction.

Thanks to your support, and our matching program underwritten by this year’s A.W. Brian Simpson Memorial Award recipient, Professor Robert Hirshon, we were able to raise more than $51,000 in a single night!

And if you were there to witness it, you know that there was more to the evening than paddle-raising. Perhaps you saw Dean Z’s instant-classic cameo in the opening video? Or perhaps you saw Professor Niehoff break four cement blocks with his bare hands on the floor of Hutchins Hall? We can’t make these things up—that’s the Michigan Difference!

We look forward to seeing you in two weeks for MLaw Feud at the Necto Nightclub. Details coming soon.
