Pitt Law Announces Renaming of Law Student Wellness Fund in Brian Cuban’s (JD ’86) Honor

The University of Pittsburgh School of Law is pleased to announce the Pitt Law Wellness Fund has been renamed to the Brian Cuban Wellness Fund. The official announcement was made during Pitt Law’s Commencement Ceremony on Sat., May 8 at the Petersen Events Center where Cuban served as the Class of 2021 Commencement Speaker.

Following a short video about the importance of wellness in law school, Dean Wildermuth said, “Because you Brian have enabled Pitt Law to continue to provide students the tools necessary to cope with the stressors of rigorous study and coursework along with healthy strategies for long-term success in the profession, we wanted to find a fitting way to honor you—so today it is my great pleasure and honor to announce that we are officially renaming the Wellness Fund—the Brian Cuban Wellness Fund.”

Started by Cuban, the Wellness Fund supports the advancement of students’ mental and physical health during Law School and prepares them for wellness in the legal profession.
