November 14, 2012Duke Law News

A group of 10 Duke Law students took time from their busy schedules on Tuesday, Nov. 6 to pause and say thank you during the fall Thank-a-thon.

Student volunteers wrote over 200 thank you notes to alumni and friends thanking them for their gifts and generosity to the Law School.

“The Thank-a-Thon is such a great way to give back,” said Kate Dickinson ’13. “All of us have benefited from donors’ gifts and to say thank you just makes you feel better. I find their gifts inspiring because it is a wonderful example for how I should lead my life. Scholarships have made my whole education possible.”

Tony Wang, a 2L student, said Thank-a-Thon provides a valuable opportunity for students.

“It’s important to give students the opportunity to feel connected to the Duke Law community – not just in the classroom and to our classmates and our professors, but also to our alums and many other supporters.”

The following students volunteered during fall Thank-a-thon: Kelly Burns ’13, Hilary Campbell ’14, Kate Dickinson ’13, Christine Kearsley ’14, Adam Kol ’13, Eric Mattingly ’13, Emily May ’13, Rebecca Tseng ’13, David Tseng ’13, and Tony Wang ’14.

    On a Friday afternoon in April, about 150 people crowded into the Bullpen, Duke’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship hub in downtown Durham, filling the high-ceilinged spaces of the former tobacco warehouse alongside walls of whiteboards and flatscreens. They were there to listen as seven entrepreneurs pitched them their ideas for applying technology to a profession that has historically been resistant to such overtures: the law.
