Help Preserve the Legacy through the DCL Commemorative Plaza

DCLPlaza

Help “Preserve the Legacy” of Detroit College of Law at Michigan State University by supporting the construction of the Detroit College of Law (DCL) Commemorative Plaza and a new DCL Legacy Scholarship. The plaza will serve as a new entrance to the Law College and provide a sense of place, identity, and history for the many alumni who attended the school during its days in downtown Detroit.

The DCL Plaza will feature much needed outdoor seating and improved landscaping. A granite seal on the floor of the Plaza will note that the college was founded as Detroit College of Law in 1891. A short history and a donor roster will also be featured on the Plaza. Alumni and friends may help support the effort and scholarship while “preserving the legacy” of DCL by making a gift if philanthropic support.

Like many DCL grads, Peter Lucido, ’88, struggled with disappointment over the school’s transition to Michigan State University. Today because of the good work of MSU Law, Lucido says he is an enthusiastic supporter which now just happens to be located in East Lansing.

A member of the Circle of Friends Benefactors Club, Lucido generously offers both his time and resources to his law alma mater. “If you give back with your classmates to the community as it exists now, you have a chance to resurrect a relationship with the community of people you once shared your experiences with,” he says. “For DCL graduates, getting involved now can be a homecoming. It’s about bringing back those individuals and those good feelings once shared during your law school days.”

Alumni and friends may help support the effort and scholarship while “preserving the legacy” of DCL by making a gift if philanthropic support. While all levels of philanthropic support are welcome, names of those who make a gift or pledge of $10,000 or more will appear on the donor wall in perpetuity. Contact Tina K. Casoli at casoli@law.msu.edu or call 517-432-6840 for more information.
