Partners At Work

The University of Minnesota Law School established the Partners at Work program to encourage alumni support and involvement. Participation in the program is voluntary.

How does it work?

Alumni make a difference individually and on behalf of your firm or organization. In addition to building a stronger alumni network, participation in the Partners at Work program signals alumni satisfaction with the school’s professional excellence and stature in the community—while demonstrating your personal commitment and professional gratitude.

Participant organizations are divided into three groups based on the number of alumni they employ, and seek to achieve 100% alumni giving.

The top five finishers in each group receive special recognition in Bench & Bar magazine, in Perspectives, and in the Law School’s Career Center.

To make a gift online to Partners at Work, visit give.umn.edu/paw. To learn more about the Partners at Work program and how your firm or organization can get involved, contact Emily Jura-Baum at jurabaue@umn.edu.

Discover the special benefits of giving at the Lockhart Club and Lockhart Club GOLD levels here.

Thank you to all our participant organizations!
