Memorial Scholarship in honor of John Bruce Dodds, Notre Dame Law School Class of 1980
The John Bruce Dodds Memorial Scholarship was established by his classmates, colleagues, family and friends. The criteria considered for the Scholarship are need, merit, and a commitment and determination reminiscent of that shown by Bruce Dodds. Bruce studied in London during the 1978–79 academic year and graduated from Notre Dame Law School in 1980. Before Law School, Bruce attended the United States Air Force Academy, where doctors discovered a cancerous growth in his hip joint which required the amputation of his leg. Following Law School, Bruce joined the Fulbright & Jaworski firm in Houston. Sadly, the malignancy recurred; and Bruce died in 1983. Even with his physical adversity, Bruce took the fullest advantage of all that the Law School had to offer, and he was greatly admired by all. He considered his year in London the highlight of his Law School experience. This scholarship is awarded annually to a London Programme student.
