William & Mary Law School not only accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but added a twist.

The law faculty challenged the student body to raise at least $500 for ALS research, matching the same amount the faculty have been asked to collect.

With both sides achieving success in their goals, a ceremonial dousing took place in front of the Law School on Thursday, Aug. 28.

Ten lucky students got to drench 10 generous professors including: Dean Davison M. Douglas and Professors Jayne Barnard, James Dwyer, Chris Griffin, Eric Kades, Allison Orr Larsen, Linda Malone, Tom McSweeney, Alan Meese, and Patricia Roberts.

“Many thanks to Professor Chris Griffin and Professor Jayne Barnard for organizing today’s ALS Ice Bucket Challenge event,” said Davison M. Douglas, Dean and Arthur B. Hanson Professor of Law. “We raised more than $1,000 for ALS research.”

Here is video of this worthwhile and fun event.
