“These were three of the best years of my life. This school, being in Washington, D.C., is so important. The great externships you get here, the great education I got here inside and outside the classroom…If I could do it all over again, I would do it exactly the same.”

John G. Carberry '73
Vice President, Oppenheimer Multifamily Housing and Healthcare Finance, Inc.

"The reputation of the Law School, my education and JD degree opened the door for a law career in Boston, a city I had never lived in but wanted to try.  Throughout my career in finance, I look back at   the Law School as providing the tools to analyze and structure a transaction, which works as intended. The Law School gave me a solid foundation and I feel my support is a partial pay-back for this and something which I would like to have available for others."

"The Position of CUA Law in D.C. with its opportunities for courses, contacts and employment in a multitude of fields is one of the key reasons for anyone to consider the Law School."

“The education I received at Catholic University Columbus School of Law provided an invaluable foundation for my career.  My experience as an editor on the Law Review greatly enhanced my writing and analytical skills.  My law school experience gave me the knowledge, training, and confidence to succeed in the profession, and instilled in me the importance of giving back and contributing to the profession and society at large.”

“I’ll always be grateful to Catholic University’s Columbus School of Law for enabling me to get a great legal education in the evenings while I worked full time as a CPA and IRS National Office corporate tax  law specialist during the day."

"I loved this law school. I will forever be grateful for the encouragement and support of my legal education and career from persons in this building – from the maintenance staff to the dean.  Nowhere else will you receive the nurturing and care that our faculty and staff provide. I enjoyed the full law school experience, even while working full time and commuting from Columbia, Maryland. I was motivated to change my life, to make a difference.




Reunion Weekend 2013 was special couple of days, drawing members of the Law School community from as far back as 1963.  Everyone, it seems, has an abiding memory of their time at CUA Law. Lend an ear to your classmates below as they recall what drew them here in the first place, and what keeps them coming back.
