For decades, loyal alumni, parents, and friends of Georgetown University Law Center have provided a solid foundation of support. Through their generosity, graduates and friends have helped to contain tuition costs, increase financial aid, promote faculty scholarship, enhance student activities, and develop a curriculum that is visionary yet founded in tradition. They have nourished what is today one of the nation’s premier law schools. Past generosity is an important part of the Law Center’s heritage and achievements. Continued support will enable the school to flourish in the new century.

Membership in the Frank Hogan Society is extended to alumni, parents, and friends who make gifts or pledges to the Georgetown University Law Center totaling $5,000 or more each year. This support is essential for the Law School and provides critical resources that are used to address immediate needs. Membership in the Hogan Society reflects a heightened commitment to legal education and a belief in the mission of the Law Center.

Who was Frank Hogan?

Frank Hogan (1877-1944) graduated from the Law Center at the top of his class in 1902. During his career, he founded the firm of Hogan & Hartson (presently Hogan Lovells), achieved a national reputation for his litigation skills, became known as a crusader for the protections of personal rights, and was elected president of the American Bar Association. In addition to his passion for the legal profession, Mr. 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 law students and lawyers alike.
