The Edward G. Donley Memorial Lecture Series
The Edward G. Donley Memorial Lectures are conducted annually under the direction of the faculty of the West Virginia University College of Law. Their purpose is to bring to the University and the College of Law distinguished members of the legal profession to lecture in fields of current interest and development in the law.
The Donley lecturers and speakers make substantial and significant contributions to the growth of legal knowledge, and illuminate the directions the law must take in fulfilling its function in society.
The Donley Memorial Lectures are made possible through income from a trust fund administered by the WVU Foundation, Inc. The lectures were established in memory of Edward G. Donley by Eleanor T. Donley, his widow, and by Robert T. Donley, his son, now both deceased.
Edward G. Donley had a distinguished career as a lawyer engaged in active practice in Morgantown, West Virginia, from the date of his graduation from the WVU College of Law in 1899, to his death on June 21, 1952. His life and career were marked by his outstanding contributions to law, to church, to civic and financial affairs, and to the welfare and growth of West Virginia University and the College of Law.
