On September 28, 576 alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends of Chicago-Kent donated $531,949 to the law school. More than 200 additional donors supported our efforts this year than last year. Five alumni, two faculty members, and one staff member led the pack, making significant challenge gifts. With contributions from nearly 350 alumni, 49 faculty members, 31 staff members and 147 students, we were able to establish five $25,000 scholarships, launch a moot court team, and endow the nationally-recognized Palmer Civil Liberties Prize. THANK YOU for showing the world what the C-K family can accomplish in just 24 hours. Read more about our alumni challenge donors here.
