Why Give

The Board of Trustees created the Development Office as an independent entity, dedicated solely to developing financial and community support for the law school, thus allowing the Dean to focus on the academic successes of the law school.

The Office of Development is committed to serving our donors with the highest level of integrity and appreciation, upholding the law school's core mission of preparing new attorneys grounded in the same fundamentals that have been taught here for more than 110 years.


Your gift helps the law school and its students maximize potential by providing support in four areas:

Student support
Academic and need-based scholarships, stipends, and bar exam preparation.

Faculty support
Faculty recruitment and development, endowed chairs, and research and travel grants.

Program support
Honors programs, clinics, externships, moot court and trial advocacy programs, and student life activities.

Facilities and technology support
Library, computer services, upgraded classrooms, and capital improvements.
