CELEBRATING FACULTY AND ALUMNI: IHL Clinic Receives $25,000 Challenge Grant

The International Humanitarian Law Clinic received a $25,000 challenge grant from John M. Dowd 65L and Carole L. Dowd 65L.

“Unfortunately the nature of warfare today presents extraordinary new risks and challenges for our young men and women on the front lines in the war on terror,” John Dowd says. “These risks and challenges require that we marry the very best minds in our great universities with our military universities to equip our fighting forces with all the knowledge and skill to defeat the enemy while protecting the lives of innocent people around the world. The IHL Clinic is on the cutting edge of this noble effort.”

The clinic is charged with raising additional funds to match the Dowd donation. To learn more about the clinic, visit www.law.emory.edu/IHLC or contact Laurie Blank, IHL Clinic director, at 404.712.1711 or lblank(at)emory.edu.
