An anonymous alumnus has generously recorded a new estate gift raising his total bequest commitment to Northwestern Law to $3.25 million. This extraordinary deferred gift will be used to bolster an existing endowed scholarship and to establish a new endowed discretionary fund to be utilized by a future Dean of the Law School. The gift will greatly enhance the Law School's ability to meet the financial needs of our students and allow flexibility for future Law School Deans to implement their vision. This generous bequest commitment is part of Northwestern Law's $250 million Motion to Lead Campaign which has raised over $243 million to date.
An anonymous gift of $500,000 to the Law School Fund will provide essential support for the Law School’s annual ongoing operations. This gift will enable numerous programs and activities across the Law School, including student and clinical programming, faculty support, and scholarship assistance.
