Extraordinary faculty make a law school rise above the rest.
As a law school of renowned standing, we support our faculty in their pursuit of academic distinction. When professors achieve a national or international reputation, they are often bestowed a named position – an endowed chair – to help fund continued advancements in legal thought. These positions are intended for faculty who are among the most esteemed in their fields and are also used to attract prominent academics to UCLA Law.
When you establish an endowed chair, your gift honors our faculty and links your name in perpetuity to the ideas or advancement of legal thought that matter most to you. This gift continues to evolve and grow as each faculty chair holder conducts research, is published and receives accolades. An endowed chair can create an enduring partnership that makes your name synonymous with prestigious work and the excellence that follows from generation to generation.
