Support the Law School
A New Generation of Notre Dame Lawyers
Through a strong tradition of philanthropy, you play a major role in the Law School’s ability to educate a new generation of Notre Dame Lawyers. By supporting the Law School’s educational mission and highest priorities, you contribute to the ongoing success of Notre Dame Law School. Key sources of support provide student fellowships, expand the Kresge Law Library, enhance the Loan Repayment Assistance Program, and provide resources for the Public Service Initiative.
“We aspire to be a premier law school, as well as an integral part of a great university which claims the Catholic tradition as part of its intellectual heritage.” From the Mission Statement of Notre Dame Law School
Enhancing our Loan Repayment Assistance Program
Alumni giving is a major factor in the loan repayment assistance program. “Thanks to their generosity, the Law School was able to substantially enhance LRAP three years ago,” says Bob Jones, Clinical Professor of Law and LRAP administrator. “Since that time, the total amount awarded annually has more than doubled to $70,000 (the maximum allowed per qualifying student is $12,000), and the number of participants in the program has increased considerably. Our hope is to continue to grow the program so that it will become one of the best in the country.”
Continued Funding for our Public Service Initiative
Through the Public Service Initiative established in 2008, Notre Dame is able to extend modest stipends to recent graduates who are still seeking employment. Michael Hom, ’04 JD, of the Career Development Office works with other Law School alumni to find positions with government, nonprofit, and other public interest groups. This special program, supported by alumni and friend donations to the Law School Annual Fund and the Order of St. Thomas More, provides an invaluable springboard for recent graduates.
Every gift matters.

Since Max Siegel became USATF’s fourth CEO in May 2012, he has signed 12 corporate partnership deals and grown the organization’s sponsor roster from seven to 19 and increased the organization’s annual revenue from $19 million to $30 million. USATF board member Jackie Joyner-Kersey credits the recent success of USATF with Siegel’s “team approach” in dealing with sponsors and athletes. “Max is a ‘we’ guy,” Joyner-Kersey said. “It’s about how we can do this together. That approach has created tremendous buy-in with athletes, sponsors and other constituents which has produced tremendous progress for the organization.” Read more
Kevin Warren, who is entering his 11th season with the Vikings, most recently served as the Vikings Executive Vice President of Legal Affairs and Chief Administrative Officer. As CEO, Warren will now oversee all aspects of the Vikings business operations and will create strategic efforts for all departments. Warren has been instrumental in the design and construction process of the new Viking stadium set to open in 2016. Viking Owner/Chairman Zygi Wilf said, “Kevin’s leadership, acumen, passion and work ethic will continue to be a positive asset for the Vikings and this community.” Warren and his wife are very committed to the Minneapolis-St. Paul community, where they recently donated $1 million to the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital to establish “Carolyn’s Comforts”, a child cancer emergency assistance fund named in honor of Warren’s late sister.
