Thornely Society Foundation Members Plaque

Sidney remains very grateful for the generosity of all Law alumni and their ongoing support. The success of the Thornely Society to date is in large part due to its Foundation Members who enabled the Society to reach its first significant fundraising goal - The John Thornely Fellowship in Law, held by both Dr Fernando Bordin and Mrs Hannah Saunders. Foundation Members are commemorated in a plaque located in the College Law Library.
All levels of support for the College and the study of Law at Sidney are appreciated.  All those who read Law at Sidney or have since entered the legal profession are Associate members of the Thornely Society.  Foundation Members of the Thornely Society are entitled to vote at the AGM. All donations to the Thornely Fund enable Sidney to offer an extraordinary range of financial support to its Law students – from bursaries and prizes through to travel awards and support for further professional work. The College is hopeful that the Thornely Society will continue to develop not only as a generous financial support for Law at Sidney but, as Professor Sir Alan Dashwood QC commented at the 2011 Thornely Dinner, also as a collegial association which can provide its members with networking and mentoring opportunities.
 
Suggestions for speakers, venues and ideas about possible society events are all welcome, please contact events@sid.cam.ac.uk.
