The goal of the Saint Ignatius Law Society is to foster camaraderie within the Saint Ignatius law community. Within 5 years the Law Society raised over $100,000 for the Michael F. Lefkow Memorial Scholarship. This endowment provides tuition assistance for financially struggling Saint Ignatius students. The society was founded in 2005 by Thomas E. Brabec ’73, John M. Coleman ’67, Kevin J. Conway ’69, Daniel G. Pikarski ’90 and Curtrice White Scott ‘90.
The Law Society is open to any alum, parent, or friend of Saint Ignatius College Prep who is involved in the field of law. The $250 annual cost of membership supports the Law Society Endowment and is entirely tax deductible. As a member, you and your firm will be recognized in the annual Law Luncheon program book and will receive an official Saint Ignatius Law Society lapel pin.
