A Coffee Break to Refuel the Spirit

Tom and Leslie Murphy

This winter, Tom Murphy ’80, J.D. ’85 and his wife, Leslie ’80, made a donation to build a coffee bar at the Alexander Blewett III School of Law. Tom explains why this gift is so meaningful to them:

“I married Leslie three months before entering law school. We soon had two little boys, but not much money. I was in school and working full time, so a visit with Leslie over coffee was one of the highlights of our day. This gift is for struggling law students to remember to take time with the most important people in their lives.”
