For the Future: the Campaign for Penn State Students

The Law School is engaged in the most ambitious fundraising effort in its history as part of Penn State’s $2 billion University-wide For the Future: The Campaign for Penn State Students. Thanks to the generosity of alumni and friends, to date we have raised more than $29.6 million toward our $35 million fundraising goal. Please see the Law School’s For the Future campaign brochure for additional information.

In order to reach our goal before the campaign concludes in the spring of 2014, we need your support. Every gift matters. Please contact us today to find out how your gift, pledge, or planned gift can help us reach our campaign goal and help to support our students now and into the future!

“For those of us who have had the privilege of being lawyers, one of our responsibilities is to see that our profession continues to produce outstanding lawyers…We had the benefit of the investment of those who came before us and it is important that we pay a dividend on that investment by reinvesting in those who will follow us through our school.”

— James. W Durham ‘65, chair of the Law School’s For the Future campaign
