THE VILLANOVA LAW DIFFERENCE
This symposium will bring together leaders in law and ethics and will feature University of Virginia Professor Mary C. Gentile, PhD, the developer of “Giving Voice to Values” (GVV) approach. The approach can help lawyers act effectively and with professionalism. CLE credits available.
Every year, third-year law students are encouraged to make a donation to Villanova Law before they graduate. This year, the Class of 2019 has the opportunity to make an even greater impact through the 3L Legacy Gift thanks to the generosity of the Del Raso Family.
