Law alumna’s gift will fund new prosecution law clinic​

Washington University School of Law will establish a Prosecution Law Clinic in partnership with the City of St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office. The clinic will be funded by a generous gift from former prosecutor and law alumna Alicia McDonnell (right) (JD ’95), who hopes to strengthen the ranks of criminal prosecutors by creating opportunities for talented law students to gain hands-on experience essential to a career in criminal justice.
