Dean's Circle

  • The Dean’s Circle recognizes donors whose annual charitable support of Capital University Law School totals $1,000 or more. On behalf of the students, faculty and staff, Dean Richard C. Simpson gratefully acknowledges the extraordinary generosity of these 109 donors who collectively contributed $1,077,945 from July 1, 2011, through June 30, 2012.
