About the Development Department

Since private funds are essential to the continued viability of the Law School, the Development Center solicits annual gifts for operating support and pressing needs of the Law School. Donors may choose to support the Annual Fund of the Law School through its Legal Eagle Club. The Legal Eagle Club recognizes gifts of *$100 or more (*$50 if a graduate within the last five years) made annually to support the Law School.

Donors will receive a letter thanking them for their contribution, in addition to being recognized in the following publications:

  • Annual Of Counsel Alumni Magazine
  • Annual Report

Gifts may be designated for:


There are several named scholarships that assist talented and deserving students in obtaining their dream of becoming lawyers.
