The Casey family has a legacy of generously supporting the Law School. In 1985, Henry Casey and his sister Marguerite established a chair at the Law School dedicated to business law, integrity and ethics. The Henry J. Casey Chair is currently held by Professor Lydia Loren. In 2004, Paul Casey, Henry Casey’s son, created the Paul H. Casey Scholarships for Business Law and for Public Service in honor of his late father. The Scholarships reflect Henry Casey’s vision of education, which involved not only intellectual enrichment but also attention to values, integrity, character and a commitment to public service. Scholarship recipients are expected to reflect Henry Casey’s values and follow his tradition of integrity and citizenship.
Recipients of this scholarship must have an interest in practicing public interest law. The selection committee will select students with relevant life experience, including work and volunteer experiences that demonstrate determination and a quest for self-improvement, both qualities embodied in the Casey legacy. Financial need will also continue to be an important consideration.
