Dean's Message

goluboffFor the fourteenth year in a row, more than 50 percent of alumni participated in our annual giving campaign. Almost 8,900 donors contributed $9.54 million to the Law School through annual giving alone. When we include bequests and special gifts, the Law School Foundation received $23.6 million this past fiscal year. These remarkable numbers reflect the strength of the Law School community and your affection for this special institution. Each gift reminds us that you value the role UVA Law has played in your life and allows us to provide a transformative education to students for years to come.

Your support enables UVA Law students to learn from leading scholars and legal practitioners in classroom, clinical, and experiential settings. Your gifts sustain the unmatched student experience unique to the Law School—our wide variety of academic journals, student organizations, and activities coupled with a devoted team of student services professionals who scour the country for the best students, support them throughout their years here, and send them off to exciting and fulfilling careers. We are not alone in seeing the fruits of your investments in this law school: we once again rank #1 for best professors and student quality of life in Princeton Review’s law school rankings.

This year, as we continue to celebrate the Law School’s bicentennial and begin to commemorate our centennial of coeducation, we see how deeply this institution has changed in terms of who it educates and how. We also see how much remains constant in terms of the Law School’s values of academic excellence, service to others, and the importance of community.

This annual report highlights the amazing things your generosity makes possible and demonstrates our shared commitment to draw from our past and Honor the Future. Thank you for being part of this historic journey. With your continued support, we will make our third century the best yet.
