About the Foundation

The Law School Foundation, created in 1952 as a trust by Law School alumni and now a nonprofit corporation, receives, administers, and manages private gifts from graduates and friends. The school’s current strength and national standing can be attributed directly to private resources.

The Foundation's Board of Trustees consists of 19 elected trustees and several ex-officio members including the dean.

The Law School's Alumni Association was organized in 1921 to advance the cause of legal education, promote the interests of the Law School, and encourage professional associations and fellowship among its graduates.

It is a non-dues paying organization governed by an Alumni Council of 15 elected members, the officers and former presidents of the association, and the chairs of its standing committees, the largest of which is the National Appeals Committee responsible for directing the Annual Giving Campaign.
