What is my gift used for?
Gifts can be made to support the LLM Program, LLM-Tax, Law School Scholarships, JD-MBA Scholarships, the Bluhm Legal Clinic, the Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP), and the Pritzker Legal Research Center. Furthermore, donations from alumni and friends of the Law School support approximately 20% of the School’s operating budget.

Why should I give?
Making a gift ensures that Northwestern Law will continue to be a visionary leader in the field of legal education. You will be joining a strong network of alumni and friends who believe in the Law School’s mission and are investing in the School’s legacy of excellence. Moreover, strong fundraising yields help guarantee that the Law School is held in high esteem, and that means your diploma will continue to be highly-esteemed, too!

What does it mean to be a Wigmore Donor? What is the Wigmore Club?

The Wigmore Club is a leadership giving society named for John Henry Wigmore, the first full-time dean of Northwestern Law. Wigmore Club members annually give $1,000 or more, but the Young Wigmore rate of $50 is available exclusively for 2015 graduates.

Membership benefits include:

  • Invitations to private Wigmore Club receptions, including a cocktail hour at the Law School on the evening of April 17 featuring prominent members of the Northwestern Law board

  • Having your name listed on the annual Honor Roll of Donors and at the Convocation Ceremony

  • Priority seating and accommodations at Northwestern Law events

  • Wigmore-only conference calls with Dean Rodriguez

I can’t afford to make a large donation. Will my gift really make a difference?
To achieve our ambitious campaign goals, we need the support of alumni at all giving levels. The fact that you choose to give is more important than the amount you give. A high class participation rate shows that you are committed to mission and continued excellence of Northwestern Law.
