Training the legal innovators and leaders of tomorrow takes an enormous amount of resources and support. The financial landscape for higher education has changed dramatically over the last few decades, forcing all of us to do more with less. We can no longer rely on previous levels of public funding.
That is why we must turn to our alumni and friends to ensure that we can compete with our elite peers for outstanding faculty and top students. Even though we are rich in ideas, we must have the resources to turn them into innovative research programs and novel curricular offerings. Repeated state budget cuts have forced unprecedented increases in student fees and tuition and have made us more reliant than ever on private contributions to fill the gap.
Here is how your support can make a difference.
