  • Many people like to support the causes that mean the most to them with a gift through their will or trust, or other type of planned arrangement. These gifts, known as legacy gifts, are usually (though not always) fulfilled after death. Although most planned gifts come from wills or living trusts, other options include life insurance, retirement assets, real estate, and securities.

    Visit our Planned Giving website for more information.

Your generous gift will go towards serving our students and society by leveraging the collective strengths of the projects, initiatives, and academies in the College of Law.

Arc Fellows

As partners of the Arc to Justice program, law firms support the College of Law's efforts to enhance justice for all people, especially from underrepresented populations. The program provides three-year, full tuition scholarships (Arc Fellowships) to two members of our incoming JD class. In addition to helping underwrite the cost of legal education, the program works to integrate diverse students into the legal community—which is particularly important as many diverse students are first generation lawyers who have never been exposed to our profession or its members.
