#ElonDay at Elon Law is here! 

Today, March 10, law students and alumni are engaged in a daylong celebration of Elon's birthday and the opportunity for giving to support Elon Law.

Karima Grady L'13, State of Maryland Appointed Attorney: "I give to Elon Law because Elon gave to me--time and time again!"

The day’s theme, “I Believe in Elon” calls for members of the university community to support Elon with a gift and help make March 10 the greatest day of giving in the university’s history.

Jenny E. Sweet L'10, attorney at Hensel Law, PLLC: "I give to Elon Law because the value of our alma mater matters."

The mobile-friendly Elon Day website includes a running total of gifts made in honor of Elon Day and leaderboards displaying the top campus funds and athletic programs that receive support.

Gifts of all sizes and designations will count toward the total given during the campaign.

Chris Anglin L'11, owner, Anglin Law Firm, PLLC: "I support Elon Law because of the great experience I had while attending and the school's unique approach to educating the students which prepares them well for the practice of law as attorneys."
