Membership in the Frank Hogan Society reflects a commitment to legal education and a belief in the mission of Georgetown University Law Center. Generosity from Hogan Society donors helps to increase student financial aid, promote faculty scholarship, maintain a world-class campus, and support clinics, centers, and institutes that let students learn while serving society.

The Law Center extends membership in the Hogan Society to alumni, parents, and friends who make gifts or pledges totaling $5,000 or more each fiscal year. Past generosity is an important part of the Law Center’s heritage of excellence. Continued support can fuel its success going forward. With that in mind, membership in the Hogan Society is renewable on an annual basis (July 1 – June 30).

Who was Frank Hogan?

Frank J. Hogan (1877-1944) graduated from Georgetown Law at the top of his class in 1902. During his career, he founded the firm Hogan & Hartson (presently Hogan Lovells), attained a national reputation for his litigation skills and his advocacy for the protections of personal rights, served as American Bar Association president, and spoke out prominently against antisemitism and racism. In addition to his passion for justice and the legal profession, Hogan was a dedicated advocate of the Law Center. He returned to campus to teach, contributed to the library collection, and served as president of the Georgetown University Alumni Association (GUAA). His vision, dedication, and mastery of the law have inspired generations of legal students and lawyers alike.
