We at the University of Baltimore School of Law Center for Families, Children and the Courts (CFCC) are happy to announce that we now bear a new name in honor of a distinguished and generous alumna. CFCC now is known as:
The University of Baltimore School of Law Sayra and Neil Meyerhoff Center for Families, Children and the Courts
The name recognizes and expresses our gratitude to Sayra Meyerhoff, J.D. ’78, M.S. ’04, and her husband, Neil Meyerhoff, for their extraordinary support of the University of Baltimore (UB) and its School of Law. The Meyerhoffs have made a $1 million gift to the capital campaign for the stunning new John and Frances Angelos Law Center. As visionaries, the Meyerhoffs see the new building as an exceptional opportunity to create a state-of-the-art learning environment that can give UB students every educational advantage. We at CFCC also value the ongoing time and expertise Ms. Meyerhoff contributes to the university community. She currently serves on the UB Foundation Board of Directors and the School of Law Advisory Council.
CFCC will move into the new John and Frances Angelos Law Center in early June. CFCC’s suite will boast state-of-the-art offices for faculty and staff, a beautiful conference room, and fabulous work space for CFCC’s Student Fellows.
