Gifts from alumni and friends enable UW Law School to build on its rich tradition of excellence and innovation. Private support helps the Law School attract a talented, bright and diverse student body; hire and retain world-class faculty; and offer an unrivaled portfolio of transformative learning opportunities for our students. Gifts of any size make a difference. 

To help continue the Wisconsin experience you remember, please make your annual gift today. Through the UW Foundation, the Law School also can work with you to contribute appreciated securities, life insurance policies, real estate, personal property or deferred gifts such as bequests, testamentary trusts and life income trusts.


Benchers' Society

Donors who give $2,500 or more in a calendar year to any Law School fund or combination of funds become members of the Benchers' Society. Benchers' Society members receive invitations to special events, quarterly email updates from the Dean, and the satisfaction of making a tangible investment in the future of the Law School and its students.


Legacy Society

The Law School Legacy Society honors donors who make a commitment to the Law School in their wills. Legacy Society members receive regular updates from Dean Tokaji, and they are invited to our annual Dean’s Summit.

If you have made plans through your estate or are contemplating a bequest, charitable gift annuity or other planned gift to the Law School and haven’t made us aware of your plans, please contact our development directors, Liz Feist and Olivia Staruck.
