Money Doesn't Guarantee Financial Security; Knowledge Does

WASHINGTON (Feb.21) -- From the middle class to millionaires, most people feel they don't have enough money at times, says Howard University School of Law Professor Alice Gresham Bullock. But more money, Bullock says, won't necessarily solve financial difficulties if you don’t manage it properly.

Almost daily there are stories in the news about celebrities who have somehow frittered away fortunes through bad money management, notes Bullock, a nationally-known expert on tax and real estate planning.

Bullock, former dean of the law school, will explain simple, but vital steps to financial success noon Friday, Feb. 25, in room 138 of the Louis Stokes Health Sciences Library.  Her discussion on the cornerstones of smart financial planning kicks off “Gaining Financial Literacy to Building Your Personal Wealth,” a series of lectures being presented by the Women’s Health Institute. 

A member of the law school faculty since 1979, Gresham is an expert in federal taxation, wills, trusts and estates.  She is on the board of directors of the Calvert Group, the investment company that pioneered socially responsible investing to build wealth.

A frequent lecturer nationally and internationally on issues of tax, social policy, professional responsibility and legal education, Bullock has published articles in journals on a wide range of issues, including income taxation, philanthropy, legal issues in mental health and minority faculty recruitment.

She also serves on the National Advisory Board of the National Underground Freedom Center and is an independent director on the board of directors of the Calvert Group, a leading mutual fund company in the area of socially responsible investments. She is also a member of the North Country School Board of Trustees, a member of Leadership Washington and is vice chair of the Montgomery County, Md., Charter Review Commission.
