Areas to Support

Private giving to the UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law is one of the primary sources of funding for programs and activities that enrich the UNLV Law experience. Gifts from alumni and friends are also vital to ensuring that the opportunities at the Law School are available for everyone, regardless of income level. Through their giving, donors join a family of supporters who help educate attorneys that foster beneficial change in our society and communities.
