Welcome from the Director

Since its inception in 2004, the J.L. Weigand, Jr. Notre Dame Legal Education Trust has provided support in a variety of ways to the best Kansas law students.  Today, we’re fortunate to have a rich treasure chest of alumni leading the way in developing a family-like network of excellence and opportunities.

Each year, we strive to add value to what our organization offers, for the betterment of our scholars and, ultimately, the citizens of Kansas.  After reviewing this site, I think you’ll agree that it’s exciting to see what happens when you bring the best legal minds in Kansas together!
