Partners At Work

The Partners at Work Firm Giving Challenge is a testament to what the Minnesota Law alumni community can accomplish when we come together and answer the call to give back.

Minnesota Law School alumni at participating firms take part in a friendly competition to achieve the highest percentage of alumni who make a donation to their Law School during the fiscal year.

Partners at Work high achievers are recognized by:

  • Firm recognition in Bench & Bar magazine, on our website, and in Minnesota Law alumni magazine
  • Firm recognition at On-Campus Interviewing
  • Individuals at participating firms who give at the Lockhart Club leadership levels are listed below and will be recognized at their firm in addition to the normal Lockhart Club benefits.

To learn more about the Partners at Work challenge, contact Emily Jura-Baum at jurabaue@umn.edu.
 

Thank you for being Partners at Work!

Overall, 433 alumni (55%) at all firms together donated $363,000 to Minnesota Law this past fiscal year. These gifts are crucial investments in student support, faculty excellence, and innovative programming.
