A fun day of recreation and networking is planned as the University of La Verne College of Law  and the Society of Legal Studies & Business host the fifth annual Don Dunn Memorial Golf Tournament on April 6, 2013.

Named in honor of the former dean of La Verne Law, this year’s event will take place at Sierra Lakes Golf Course in Fontana. Along with an 18-hole scramble, the tournament will also feature an awards reception where participants will have a chance to meet and network with fellow alumni and other legal professionals.

Golfers can sign up individually ($135 per player, $100 per student player) or as a foursome ($540).  Several sponsorship opportunities are also available to individuals, businesses and organizations. Those wishing only to attend the post-tournament reception can do so for $20 each. Proceeds from the day will benefit the Society of Legal Studies & Business Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarship awards to deserving La Verne Law students.

On-site registration begins at 10 a.m. followed by a putting contest at 11 a.m. and a shotgun start at noon. Snacks and beverages will be provided on the course. The awards reception, featuring hors d’oeuvres and a raffle, will also include team honors as well as individual prizes for longest drive, longest putt, closest to the pin, and the putting contest winner.

A nationally recognized law librarian, experienced administrator and dedicated educator, Dunn joined the University of La Verne as dean and professor of law at the College of Law in 2003. While at La Verne Law, he led the law school through the difficult process of national accreditation, achieving provisional approval in February 2006. He passed away in January 2008 of complications related to cancer.
