The Law Firm Challenge launched in February 2013 with the goal of strengthening the connection between the Law School and our alumni. The Challenge, consisting of 105 firms with five or more alumni, established a friendly peer competition to enhance their collective philanthropic support to the Law School.

The success of the Law Firm Challenge resulted in 208 additional donors and a participation increase from 32% to 42% for the alumni group. It also succeeded in helping strengthen the school’s relationship with many great law firms.
