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. As an annual outreach and fundraising initiative, this giving challenge exemplifies the deep connections among alumni and their attachment to their Law School. Time and again, our alumni rise to that challenge to help preserve the tradition of excellence through support of their Law School. Firms and corporations benefit by enhancing their visibility at the Law School and increasing their recruitment profile.

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 winners and high achievers receive:
