The UM School of Law has started our first annual Law Firm Challenge! We are challenging 20 Mississippi law firms to reach 100% giving participation from all UM Law Alumni within their firm. Alumni may give to any UM Law Fund to participate. The Challenge for 2017-2018 runs from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018. If your firm reaches 100% giving participation you will receive a personalized trophy, recognition on the UM website and our alumni newsletter.

What is the Goal of this Challenge?

Currently our annual giving rate amongst our 7,000 alumni is only 4.4%! Our goal is to triple that number by the end of this year’s challenge. Increasing our giving participation would provide the school with vital scholarship and operational funds needed to help numerous initiatives that are not funded by endowments.

This challenge is a great way to stay engaged with your alma mater by giving back. By donating to the Law School you will be supporting our students directly! Some areas of support include:
