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.
