Karen & Kimball Anderson, Class of 1977

The University of Illinois is a world-class educational institution vital to the future and economic growth of Illinois.

We choose to support the College of Law financially because our experiences there, both academically and otherwise, were pivotal to shaping who we are today. More and more, we are seeing new graduates unable to work in the field of public interest, due to law school debt. Therefore, we support fellowships because of the dire need for more legal services attorneys, in the hopes that the respective organizations will be so impressed by the work of our graduates that they will prioritize figuring out a way to hire them after the fellowship ends.
