Giving to the UK College of Law
Thank You to our Donors
The financial support of the College of Law's alumni and friends is essential to maintaining the quality of legal education expected from the Commonwealth’s preeminent law school. Such gifts fund scholarships for students, professorships for faculty members, and co-curricular programs such as the trial competition and moot court teams.
Dean’s Discretionary Fund
Unrestricted gifts to the Dean’s Discretionary Fund provide the College of Law with the flexibility to direct resources where they are most needed. This often includes increased financial aid to students, additional support for faculty research, equipment acquisitions and programmatic support.
Gifts to Law Scholarships ensure that deserving students have the opportunity to pursue a legal education at UK. UK Law students are known for their efforts both inside and outside the classroom. In addition to their academic work, UK Law students are involved in many student organizations and service to the community.
Professorships allows the College of Law to continue supporting our outstanding faculty as they seek new ways to ensure they are best serving their students educational needs while also making advances and contributions to the legal fields. Their efforts can clearly be seen in the publishing of new casebooks, engagements with both the Kentucky and US Supreme Courts, and successful pro-bono representations. Their years of dedication the UK Law would not be possible without the continued gifts to professorships.
