Law Firm Challenge

Main Content

The Law Firm Challenge seeks to strengthen the connection between Duke Law School and our alumni practicing in law firms across the nation. 

Our goal is ambitious but simple: to have 100% of graduates working in firms with five or more alumni make a gift to the Law School by June 30, 2022.

The Law Firm Challenge is a friendly peer competition that encourages collective philanthropic support for the Law School which has an immediate impact on our students.

Annual giving by alumni helps ensure the continued excellence of the Duke Law experience and strengthens the community. Additionally, participation is an indication of alumni satisfaction and sends a message to the world about the quality of the Duke Law degree and alumni optimism about its future.
