In June, Dean Andrew Perlman established the Dean’s Cabinet, described as a “distinguished community of loyal benefactors” who each commit $50,000 to the school and meet with Perlman to offer advice, enhance Suffolk’s profile, and encourage law school friends and colleagues to advance Suffolk’s mission. The cabinet currently has 12 alumni members. Members must pledge at least $50,000 and agree to five-year terms on the cabinet.
Boston Personal Injury Lawyer, Eric J. Parker JD’86, co-founder of Parker Scheer LLP, donated to the Accelerator-to-Practice Program, a three-year course of study that includes cross-training in law firm management and legal technology. “It’s one of the most innovative and essential programs Suffolk has adopted,” he said.
As Parker put it, “The legal market is radically different than it was when I came up; we need to work together to help our school and our graduates adapt to the new normal.”
