At the law school, Howard Cayne, JD ’79, and Steven Rappaport, JD ’74, are heading the school’s efforts to far exceed a conservative goal of $55 million in resources for the school’s most pressing needs. The two are co-chairing a 30-member committee that is helping to guide the school’s efforts toward becoming a truly global law school. To date, the school has received over $42 million in gifts and pledges toward its goal.

The law school’s campaign seeks to support students through a focus on scholarships; experiential-learning and investment in our nationally recognized clinical programs, and robust placement and career-building opportunities. Faculty support will focus on increased chaired professorships and visiting and adjunct opportunities, as well as development of new models for teaching. Central to this vision of success will be the support of alumni, faculty, staff and friends of Washington University School of Law.
