The Dean’s Circle is a community of alumni and friends who, with annual leadership giving, demonstrate extraordinary commitment to the University of Chicago Law School.

The Law School would like to thank and recognize these donors who demonstrate leadership support. The Dean’s Circle honors alumni and friends who contribute annually at the following membership levels:

*Alumni who graduated in the past 10 years qualify to be an Young Alumni Advocate member

Please note that matching gifts can count toward these giving levels.

All Dean’s Circle members will be recognized in the fiscal year Honor Roll of Donors (for gifts made between July 1 and June 30) that is published each fall. Additionally, members will receive invitations to special events, such as intimate gatherings with the Dean of the Law School, the President of the University, and leaders in business and law.

Check back later in the fall to see the updated benefits for your Dean's Circle membership.
