Naming Opportunities

Named gift opportunities advance the Law School strategic priorities. Named gifts may bear the donor’s name or may be named to honor a spouse or other family member, a colleague, a favorite professor or mentor, or a firm or organization deserving recognition. The specific terms of these gifts are determined in consultation with the Dean and the Law School’s advancement office.

The Law School welcomes development of additional naming opportunities commensurate with donors’ specific interests. The following list provides a representative sample of named gift opportunities:
