Giving to the Law School

Ideas. They bring University of Chicago Law School students, faculty, and alumni together. The desire to go deeper, learn more, and push boundaries ensures that members of our community can lead in any field they choose and change the world. Your support makes that possible.

"Instilled in me the desire to give back"

Lindsey Livingston, ’14, recipient of Maurice Walk Centennial Scholarship Fund

The Law School has launched a $175 million campaign to expand our eminence in legal scholarship and teaching, support groundbreaking faculty research and student scholarships, and to continue developing extraordinary programs such as the Doctoroff Business Leadership Program, the Public Interest Law Program, the Coase-Sandor Institute for Law and Economics, and the Kapnick Leadership Development Initiative. This campaign is part of the University of Chicago Campaign: Inquiry and Impact, the most ambitious and comprehensive campaign in the University’s history, which will raise $4.5 billion to support faculty and researchers, practitioners and patients, and students and programs across the University.
