Nell Jessup Newton, the Joseph A. Matson Dean of Notre Dame Law School, is pleased to announce a new endowment established by Kerry Durr Roscoe to honor the memory of her late father, Gerard C. Durr.

The fund will be named the Gerard C. Durr Endowment Supporting Notre Dame Law School Alumni Public Interest Careers, and will be used to support Law School graduates who are participants in either the Law School’s post-graduate public interest fellowship program or the Law School’s post-graduate Loan Repayment Assistance Program. The intent is to assist attorneys performing public interest or public service legal work that supports the well-being of children, mothers, and families.
