Partners in Philanthropy: UCLA Law's 17th Law Firm Challenge Soars
Providing vital support to their alma mater, nearly 1,350 lawyers at over 100 firms participated in the 2019 Law Firm Challenge, raising nearly $3.9 million for UCLA Law scholarships and programs. The law school thanks all participating firms and alumni, especially the leaders at each firm who spearheaded the effort and James D.C. Barrall '75, the longtime Latham & Watkins partner who founded the challenge in 2002, continues to champion the effort and is now Senior Fellow at the Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy.
Overall, 76% of UCLA Law alumni in the participating firms took part in the challenge in 2018-19. At 51 firms, every alum who is a partner contributed. At 36 firms, every alum who is a partner has participated for at least five consecutive years. Twenty-four firms earned gold stars, denoting that more than half the partners at the firm made leadership gifts in 2018-19.
