“I give to our law school today in appreciation and gratitude for what our law school gave to me many years ago. By giving me the tools to succeed, it provided me with a path for my future. For over 30 years now I have drawn on those tools – developed during moot court practices, classroom assignments and discussions, and even through those tedious study group sessions – which has helped me manage my practice, assist with the management of my law firm, and contribute to my community in a meaningful way. I hope my efforts contribute to the development of alumni who also support the law school’s mission to graduate professionals who accept part of the practice of law as a civic obligation. There is no better way to give back to the profession, the law school and those whom we are called to serve.”

“Once I became a member of the alumni board, I started giving to the Annual Fund – whether it was out of guilt, obligation or duty is unclear. Nonetheless, I started giving. Please keep in mind that no one was scheduling a ceremony to celebrate the size of my gifts. But I can assure you that even small gifts are welcomed, appreciated and, most importantly, they matter. Mercer Law School’s ability to compete with other law schools in the State of Georgia and in the region is directly impacted by the Annual Fund.”
- Deron R. Hicks, Esq. – Georgia Inspector General, Class of '93
"All of us who graduated from Mercer Law School have enjoyed the benefit of a wonderful legal education. Too many of us believe, however, that our financial investment ended when we left the school. It should not. In order for Mercer to continue to provide outstanding legal educations, it must receive contributions from its graduates. Likewise, continuing to give protects the Law School's reputation within the legal community. In fact, law schools are judged not only on the amount of donations received by alumni, but also the percentage of alumni who contribute anything. With respect to the financial support of our Law School, it is true that every little bit helps. In the end, it is our investment and we should continue to protect it."
