Law School Fund

 

Since the creation of the Law School Fund in 1965, thousands of alumni, staff, parents and friends have answered the School of Law's call for private support.

The Law School Fund supports students through scholarships, experiential learning opportunities and student group funding, and helps to keep Georgia Law at the forefront of teaching and research. The Law School Fund is the single largest source of student scholarships, which are funded solely by private donations.

It may surprise you to know that only 28.7% of the University's income is provided by the state. Philanthropic investments in Georgia Law have been a key component of our success for generations, and the continued generosity of our alumni and friends is necessary to safeguard our position among the nation's finest law schools.

Yes! Every gift is important, regardless of the size. If every graduate of Georgia Law gave $100 each year, we could:

 
  • provide new scholarships to one in three students;
  • greatly expand our study and work abroad opportunities; or
  • improve funding of clinical programs and externships that provide essential legal skills through hands-on experience and community service.

Your gift, no matter how large or small, enhances our ability to train outstanding new lawyers and leaders. Every dollar counts!
