Law Firm Participation Challenge-2013

The Washington University Law 2013 Law Firm Participation Challenge

We’re proud to announce that 2013 marks our most successful Firm Participation Challenge ever!  A record breaking twelve firms committed to 100% participation, demonstrating incredible dedication and commitment to ensuring the Washington University School of Law remains among the elite in the nation. The involved alumni collectively made gifts totaling $317,249, given by 502 of the 737 alumni at participating law firms.  This represents an all-time high of 68% participation among alumni at these firms, compared to our overall law alumni participation rate of 28% this year. 

The Firm Participation Challenge is of tremendous benefit to the law school and the current students, as the annual fund is the largest source of unrestricted funding that can be directed where most needed to provide the greatest benefit to students.  We thank all the alumni who continue to show their support of Washington University School of Law through their gifts, and in particular, the many alumni volunteers who encourage philanthropic support of this law school. Thirty of the 46 firms participating in the 2013 Law Firm Challenge met or exceeded their own prior year rate of participation:
