Class of 2020 Gift Campaign

The Class of 2020 Gift Campaign is a student-led initiative supporting the Law School Annual Fund. Members of the Class of 2020 join together to make a Class Gift, a collective class contribution to the Law School. The Class Gift focuses on participation, not dollars raised. It is the act of giving that is important—gifts of any size make a big difference.
