Law Students Begin a Legacy

The class giving campaign helps maintain the outstanding education that Notre Dame Law School provides. It also establishes a tradition of philanthropy that supports and strengthens programs for future law students.

Where do the funds raised by the 3L Campaign go?

Many Notre Dame Law School programs are funded entirely by law school benefactors. Class gift contributions support the following programs: The Summer Stipend Program, Student Fellowships, The Loan Repayment Assistance Program, and the Law School General Fund. You can specify the allocation of your pledge.

What are the goals of the 3L Campaign?

Class participation is the most important element of the class gift. Many peer institutions boast 3L participation rates of 70-100%. The class gift is an opportunity to take part in an extensive legacy of alumni who support NDLS. Establishing and maintaining a culture of giving helps maintain the value of a Notre Dame law degree and provides support for future generations of Notre Dame Lawyers.

If I participate, what is the minimum amount I can pledge?

Members of the Class of 2013 are encouraged to provide a minimum pledge of $20.13. We know members of the class will pursue many options after graduation and have varying capacities to give. Please give at a level that is comfortable for you. Pledges are payable over one to three years.

An annual gift of $500 qualifies recent graduates for Associate membership in the Order of St. Thomas More (the law school’s recognition society) and contributions can be made on a quarterly or monthly basis.

How does my gift affect the football ticket lottery?

First-time graduates automatically receive a lottery application for the football season corresponding to a graduation year. Thereafter, a minimum $100 annual contribution must be received by December 31 preceding the upcoming football season to be eligible for the football ticket lottery. Visit Notre Dame football ticket lottery for more information.

Will there be prizes awarded?

Please contact Class Gift Chairpersons for more information.
