AUWCL Celebrates Tenley Campus "Topping Out"


On Oct. 23, AUWCL faculty, administrators, and alumni on the Dean's Advisory Council gathered at the new Tenley Campus for a "Topping Out Celebration." This tradition recognizes the workers at the site and celebrates the safe completion of the beginning phases of the work.

"This foundation will support a dynamic law school that will meet the evolving needs of modern times by providing the flexibility to anticipate the future," said Dean Claudio Grossman in his remarks.

The law school recently launched a campaign with a goal of raising $20M to build the Tenley Campus and to support scholarships that will ensure the best, brightest, and most promising students have the opportunity to study at AUWCL. So far the campaign has raised more than $8 million.

“We are deeply grateful for the early support of AUWCL’s donors, alumni, and friends who are making our new home a reality,” said Khadijah Al-Amin-El, director for Development and Alumni Relations.
