UM Law School Renames Fund after Joseph P. Blocher

August 29, 2013

The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law has announced that their Law School Faculty Endowment Fund has been renamed The Joseph P. Blocher ’51 Faculty Endowment Fund. The Fund was created to provide annual income to recruit and retain outstanding faculty members at the law school. The Fund has helped faculty complete research and publish articles on topics ranging from human rights and government litigation to AIDS and international law. Mr. Blocher remained a dedicated steward of the Fund throughout his life and wanted his contributions to help the law school as an institution develop and inspire its faculty members to expand and excel in their individual areas of interest.   

The Joseph P. Blocher ’51 Faculty Endowment Fund will memorialize Mr. Blocher and ensure his lasting legacy at the law school.
