Partners At Work

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

Firms with Minnesota Law School alumni compete to get the highest percentage of alumni who make a donation to the Law School during the fiscal year (July 1- June 30). Firms are divided into groups based on the total number of alumni they employ.

The top five finishing firms in each group receive special recognition in Bench & Bar magazine, on our website, and in Perspectives magazine.

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.

You may make a gift online to Partners at Work.

Discover the special benefits to yourself (and your firm) of giving at the Lockhart Club and Lockhart Club GOLD levels.

Thank you to all our participant organizations!
