Education
J.D.
Class of 1981

In the practice of law, the same ethical standards must be met whether you are a graduate of Notre Dame or any other university. So, what is it that makes our graduates unique? We believe it can be found in our ultimate goal. Beyond striving for professional achievement, a Notre Dame lawyer fundamentally acts in service to others. Our approach seeks to do more than train students in a profession; it seeks to help them discover their lives as a vocation. A different kind of lawyer is one who realizes the practice of law is not an end in itself. It’s the beginning of a new, highly specialized way of giving back.

B.A. in Government
Class of 1977

The University of Notre Dame’s endowment provides nearly $100 million in financial aid annually to help students pay for college. Less than a generation ago, in 1990, the number was around $5 million. They’ve been able to keep pace with the rapidly growing financial needs of students, in part, by making smart investments in private equity.
