Lash Harrison challenges other alumni to support the law school’s unrestricted fund.

Campaign Emory

Emory Law alumnus and volunteer Lash Harrison 62B 65L has pledged $250,000 in challenge funds to encourage fellow alumni to support the Emory Law School Fund for Excellence. His gift will create the C. Lash Harrison Endowment to provide unrestricted support for the school’s greatest priorities.

In the coming years the endowment will support priorities such as scholarships, help recruit and retain faculty, purchase technology, maintain and renovate learning spaces, provide real-world practice experiences for students, and support other professional development activities.

Building on the gift, the Emory Law Advisory Board is working to generate $250,000 in new gifts from alumni and $200,000 from Emory Law campaign and board leaders in the next three years. Harrison will match all new gifts at the Barrister ($1,000) and Dean’s Circle ($2,500) levels as part of the school’s “100 Barristers in 100 Days” program.

Harrison is a partner in the Atlanta law firm Ford & Harrison, which he helped found in 1978. He served on Emory’s Board of Visitors from 1999 to 2002. He is a member of the Emory Law Advisory Board.
