Alumni and Giving Support W&L

The 2019-20 fiscal year ended in a way none of us expected with a pandemic, mercurial financial markets, virtual instruction replacing in-person classes, and social and racial unrest in our country.  Through it all, our outstanding community of law alumni, parents, and friends have remained passionate supporters of our defining brand of legal education.

W&L Law concluded the 2019-20 Law Annual Fund with the second-highest total ever, raising $1.621M, reaching well past our $1.575M goal. At 10% of the Law School's yearly operating budget, exceeding this goal helps better position W&L Law to meet the known and unknown challenges ahead. Thank you for your generous support.

New Directed Giving

A key strength of W&L Law is our close-knit community that fosters personal and professional growth in a humane academic environment. Our small size allows us to transcend a "one-size-fits-all" student experience. To better reflect this range of experience and promote choice in financial support from law alumni, parents, and friends, the Law Annual Fund now enables directed giving to five key areas:

  • Unrestricted (area of greatest need)
  • Student Financial Aid
  • Student Academics
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Student Opportunities
