Your giving allows us to continue our proud tradition of important and useful scholarship, public service, and educating lawyers and leaders who make a positive impact on their communities.


Give Now graphic The Law School has long been a national and international leader in legal education and scholarship. Until relatively recently our success was built on a strong foundation of generous investment from the State of Minnesota and the private philanthropy of alumni and friends.

In recent years state funding for the Law School has dwindled to a sliver of our operating budget and in a few years may reach zero. While philanthropic support has always been important to the Law School’s excellence, our future strength now more than ever depends on increased private investment.

The Law School proudly serves and strengthens our community and our state, and our scholars, students, and alumni play a vital role in leadership and finding solutions to difficult societal problems.
