Giving

Scholars who come to William S. Boyd School of Law and the donors who support them, each bring a valuable gift.

The scholars: a passion for law, a thirst for knowledge, a special ability, a genius.

The donors: something given voluntarily, a benefaction, a legacy, an endowment.

It is together, through this exchange of gifts, that they redefine possibility and commit to forever changing our society for the better.

Why Give?

Miles Dickson TestimonialThank you for considering making a gift to the William S. Boyd School of Law.

Endowed professorships, student scholarships, law library moot court programs, clinics, the Lawyering Process Program, and the Saltman Center for Conflict Resolution are just some of the areas that benefit greatly from generous gifts given to the school by alumni, friends and faculty.
