crowell & moringCrowell & Moring LLP, along with the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) David A. Clarke School of Law have established the Took Crowell Institute for At-Risk Youth.

The institute was made possible through an initial $675,000 grant over six years from Crowell & Moring in memory of Eldon “Took” Crowell, the firm’s first chairman and long-time leader who passed away in May. Mr. Crowell, a devoted humanitarian and champion of pro bono legal services, was named one of the “Greatest Washington Visionaries in the last 30 years” by Legal Times. The institute will provide more than 10,000 hours of direct pro bono representation to youth in the community each year by attorney-supervised law students through three legal clinics, as well as advocate for policy reforms that will contribute to systemic change.

The Took Crowell Institute builds on the long-term work already underway at the law school’s Juvenile and Special Education Law Clinic by providing three innovative legal clinics and law reform advocacy designed to help at-risk youth become educated and productive members of society.


A reception and induction ceremony is planned for Tuesday, November 30, at 5:00 p.m. at the UDC School of Law campus. Featured speakers include Vincent Gray, District of Columbia’s Mayor-elect, among other dignitaries.

Crowell & Moring LLP is an international law firm with nearly 500 lawyers representing clients in litigation and arbitration, regulatory, and transactional matters. The firm is internationally recognized for its representation of Fortune 500 companies in high-stakes litigation, as well as its ongoing commitment to pro bono service and diversity.
