In 1959, Marty Wolf helped catapult Willamette Law into the national spotlight when he and his team won the National Moot Court Competition. Since then, Marty has served in the Booth Society Committee, his reunion committee, and as a member of the Law Leadership Cabinet. He has also sponsored scholarships every year and meets with the recipients when he can. Additionally, he's participated in classes as a speaker, mentored new lawyers, and spoken regularly with new and prospective students.
Marty's biggest impacts have been around philanthropy, both his own and helping to encourage the philanthropy of fellow law alumni. Through his most recent estate gift—which makes him the law school’s largest individual donor—he hopes to support students with the resources needed to expand experiential learning in the Pacific Northwest. With his gifts to Willamette Law, Marty seeks to help students recognize the potential and benefit in graduating law school with knowledge and experience in transactional lawyering, business acumen, leadership and transferable skills, fostering the ability of young leaders to follow paths beyond the traditional practice of law.
