Lawson Society

The College of Law recognizes donors with annual gifts of $1,000 or more as members of the Bob Lawson Society. Since Bob Lawson arrived at UK Law, his influence both inside and outside the classroom has been far reaching. In recognition of his significant contributions to the College, the Bob Lawson Society was named in his honor.

Bob Lawson Society members’ annual contributions can be seen and felt in almost every aspect of the College of Law. These gifts support all areas of UK Law by contributing to the ever increasing need for student scholarships, the recruitment and retention of the best faculty, the continued success of moot court and trial teams, and an excellent legal education for all students.

Bob Lawson Society members are invited to a special reception each year with Professor Lawson and receive automatic membership in the Law Alumni Association.
