Campaign Funding Priorities and Naming Opportunities

The Justice Corps

The Law School has launched a visionary new program to increase access to justice and to support our graduates committed to public interest legal careers: the Justice Corps. When fully funded, this program will send a group of eight or more outstanding new alumni each year to work with nonprofit legal organizations serving underrepresented individuals and communities across the world.

While a few other law schools sponsor post-graduate fellowships, no other school has a program of this ambition and magnitude. The creation of the Justice Corps will dramatically transform the culture of the Law School and enhance our growing reputation as an institution committed to bettering society, supporting our graduates, and improving the image of the legal profession. This will have an enormous positive impact on how the Law School is perceived by current and prospective students, faculty, alumni, and the national legal community.

Through the Justice Corps, the Law School can achieve three important goals: we can support our graduates who are committed to working for the public good, encourage more graduates to begin their careers with a period of public service, and increase access to justice.
