MIAMI, FLA – February 9, 2023 – Dolan Dobrinsky Rosenblum Bluestein, LLP is pleased to announce that co-founding partner Dan Dolan, served as the Master of Ceremonies on Wednesday, February 8, 2023 for the College of Law at St. Thomas University in Miami, Florida as it was renamed the Benjamin L. Crump College of Law.
Dolan, Chair of the St. Thomas University College of Law Advisory Board, and a Member of the St. Thomas University Board of Trustees, was proud to call Benjamin Crump and St. Thomas University President David A. Armstrong up to the stage as they unveiled Crump’s name on the building, marking the occasion as the first law school in the U.S. named after a practicing Black attorney.
“The naming of the Benjamin L. Crump College of Law at St. Thomas University is the latest step in an effort to encourage bridge-building among the legal profession, law enforcement, and our communities,” said David A. Armstrong, J.D., President of St. Thomas University. “Ben and I couldn’t be more different politically, but we share a passion for justice, and the hope that by working together, we can continue to drive meaningful change. Our faith in God, and our belief in the tenets laid out by our founding fathers in the U.S. Constitution, enable us to go beyond race and politics, and focus on the work necessary to truly make the United States the home of the free, and the brave.”
Attorney Ben Crump chose to partner with St. Thomas University (STU) and its College of Law, in part, because it is situated in a global city that is replete with ethnic and racial diversity. Also, STU is one of the country’s most diverse law schools. It was ranked #1 “Greatest Resources for Minority Students” in the 2022 and 2023 Princeton Review Best Law Schools’ rankings, and preLaw Magazine rated it among the top-ten Best Schools for Racial Justice (2022) in the United States.
“It is a privilege to be a part of the St. Thomas University legacy through the Benjamin L. Crump College of Law. We have come such a long way in the journey to equality, but we are not there yet,” said Attorney Crump. ‘The future changemakers and civil justice leaders that will matriculate from St. Thomas will soon be passed the torch from today’s civil rights icons and I have every confidence that they will meet the moment.”
