Law Firm Challenge

Today’s students face unprecedented challenges both in the cost of legal education and in the legal job market. Alumni donations support scholarships, high quality career services, professional training, and other supportive services, in order to attract top students to Illinois Law and then prepare them to be competitive in the legal career market. The quality of our students and recent graduates affects the reputation of the College of Law, so your investment in Illinois Law helps ensure that your law degree maintains its value over time.
