The Dean’s Circle program is a way of thanking firms with loyal UK Law alumni. In order for a firm to qualify for the Dean’s Circle program, it must meet the following requirement.
- Have at least five University of Kentucky College of Law graduates employed at the firm.
- The percent of giving participation among the UK Law graduates must reach one of the following levels:
- Platinum: 100%
- Gold: 90-99%
- Silver: 85-89%
Dean's Circle firms are recognized on the UK Law website, in UK Law Notes, and at the KBA Alumni Reception.
Those firms that give at the Platinum level receive a complimentary lunch with the Dean at the restaurant of their choice. The lunch provides the Dean with the opportunity to update alumni on what’s happening at the Law School and allow alumni to ask questions of interest.
Firms that reach 100% participation are also entered into the Dean’s Circle Champion contest. The firm that gives the highest gift, on average, receives the honor of Dean’s Circle Champion. The Dean’s Circle Champion receives a plaque and recognition at the annual KBA Alumni Reception and is honored with their name on a trophy that is kept in the Dean’s Office at UK Law.
