Individual Class Challenges

Please consider making a donation to the Class of '75 Giving Challenge. Help reach the goal of $2,000. All donations support School of Law student scholarships.

Donate Now for 1975


Class of 1980

Our class is participating in a class challenge to raise funds for the James K. Miller Student Support Fund. We all have our “Jim Miller stories” and he is still a mainstay at the law school serving as the Senior Associate Dean of Students and working to attract new students to the law school. We encourage everyone to make a gift to the James K. Miller Student Support Fund. Each gift is tax deductible and helps give back by supporting law students as they face the challenge of school, work, and loans. We’d like the class of 1980 to set an example and we suggest a minimum donation of $10 per year you have been out of law school, or alternatively, the number of beers you consumed to make it through law school - whichever is greater!
