Financial contributions to the School of Law directly assist students by providing scholarships, innovative academic programs, campus facilities, acquisition of library and research materials, and lectureships.

Gifts are welcomed to meet the needs of the School of Law. There are three primary ways in which a donor can invest: (1) by making an unrestricted gift to the law school’s Annual Fund/General Fund to be used for general operations or pressing needs; (2) by making a restricted gift designated for a particular need or purpose identified by the School of Law; and (3) by making a gift in the form of an endowment.

If you are interested in supporting the School of Law with a contribution, or have questions, please contact Cindy Matthews, Executive Assistant to the Dean at 434-592-5300 or by email at
