What is the Law Firm Challenge?
The Law Firm Giving Challenge is a competition that seeks to strengthen the connection between the School of Law and its alumni. We encourage a spirit of friendly contest between law firms with multiple Miami Law alumni to compete for 100% participation giving to their alma mater.
How does the Challenge work?
All law firms with ten or more UM Law alumni are eligible to participate. Alumni from participating law firms that make a gift to Miami Law, of any amount, between June 1st and Dec. 31st, 2017 will count toward your firm’s participation ranking. Gifts can be designated to your firm’s scholarship fund (if one exists), or to the program, area or scholarship of your choice at Miami Law.
At the end of the competition, the firm(s) that reach 100% participation and raise the most funds will be recognized at a special ceremony during one of our Alumni Events and receive a winning Trophy. The winning firms will have the right to display the trophies for a year at their offices and will be recognized on the alumni website, social media and law alumni publications.
The Law Firm Challenge is all about showing a collective show of support for your alma mater and generate publicity for your firm. Your involvement establishes your firm as a strong partner of Miami Law, dedicated to philanthropy and aligned with our school’s mission to be a pre-eminent, exemplary and relevant legal education institution.
By participating in the challenge you will be assisting to raise money for legal education and create awareness for all of the remarkable programs, clinics and scholarships at Miami Law. Moreover, your participation helps the law school boost its alumni participation rates, which has wide-ranging benefits for the school and inculcates a habit of support.
So spread the word, grab your colleagues, and get ready to go head-to-head with your alumni peers at some of the leading law firms to claim bragging rights!
