New Endowment Honors Law School Professor David Day

For an entire generation of USD Law students, the study of the US Constitution is synonymous with Professor David S. Day. A distinguished and nationally-known constitutional scholar, Professor Day joined the faculty of USD School of Law in 1983 and during his tenure mentored more than 2,000 law students in the penumbras and emanations of Constitutional Law, Constitutional Rights, and First Amendment Law.

Now, in honor of the tremendous impact Professor Day has had on the lives of his students, USD alumnus Tom Clayton (’92) has generously provided a $50,000 gift to establish the Professor David S. Day Scholarship, an endowed fund providing scholarships to the next generations of lawyer-leaders. We are asking other alumni to come together and match Tom’s generosity, by making a gift in any amount. Will you join us in honoring Professor Day’s legacy?

If Professor Day made a difference for you as a student or has informed your work in the law, we invite you to join your fellow alumni in supporting the Professor David S. Day Scholarship Endowment.
