Published: May 15, 2007
On Sunday, May 6, 2007 more than forty alumni gathered to celebrate the dedication of the Alfred Avins Special Collections Library at the Law School. The event honored Dean Avins, the founder of Widener Law and was the culmination of a fundraising campaign in his honor to benefit the special collections library and a scholarship in Dean Avins' name. After the unveiling of the plaque to honor Dean Avins, the group traveled to the Church in downtown Wilmington where many of the first students of the Delaware Law School attended classes.
