“Michigan Law Review remains grateful for Mr. Nannes's continued support. The funds the Law Review receives from the Nannes Challenge enable the journal to host a variety of training, mentorship, recruitment, and fellowship events throughout the year. This year, we have also planned a series of author talks with Michigan Law students and professors from across the country who are being published in Volume 115. We would not be able to host any of these events without support from the Nannes Challenge.” - Sommer Engels
“The Nannes Challenge helps make possible Student Funded Fellowships's support of Michigan Law students performing public interest work during the summer after their first year. In the past, our Nannes funding has either gone directly toward the grants SFF provides to public interest students to cover their living expenses or toward expenses for the annual SFF Auction, the entire proceeds of which are used to fund SFF grants.” - Erika Giroux
“The Nannes 3L Challenge provides the Michigan Journal of Law Reform with invaluable opportunities for editorial training, community building, and academic dialogue regarding cutting-edge legal reform. With the assistance of Nannes funding, the Journal can bring its academic articles to life by facilitating discussions between student and professor authors and the Michigan Law student body. Moreover, Nannes funding empowers the Journal to provide more training and activities for our members - a benefit that allows a vibrant journal community to prosper at Michigan Law.” - Stephanie Balitzer
"In the past, funds from the Nannes challenge has enabled us to breath life into the MLSA. Last year we were a small club with only a handful of members. The extra funds from Nannes enabled us to hold prospective student events at ASW and at undergrad events. Because of our efforts, last year there were 10 people in MLSA. This year, there are over 20 and growing. This year, we will use the funds to hold events throughout the law school to solidify ourselves as one of the influential clubs on campus. We will also use funds to go an a club bonding trip to Dearborn to visit one of the most Muslim-dense city in America. “ - Abe Matsui
Through the Nannes 3L Challenge, students have the wonderful opportunity to learn how philanthropy impacts their campus experience. Students can support their student organizations and programs while they are still in school, and they help provide invaluable resources to the Law School in the future. The Nannes 3L Challenge encourages students to give back to the Law School by educating them on the importance of alumni support.
For all 3Ls who commit to supporting the Law School Fund annually for the first four years after graduation, alumnus John Nannes, '73, will contribute $250 to the Law School student organization(s) of the students' choice. Organizations receive the funding this year, allowing students to see the immediate impact of their commitment to the Law School.
The Class of 2017 had a successful year leading
the Nannes 3L Challenge. In Fall 2016, 264 3Ls joined the challenge of giving
back to the Law School during the first four years after graduation. 71 student
organizations received a total of $66,000 in Nannes funds. Thank you,
John and Class of 2017!
Student organizations use this funding to bring in special speakers, host events, launch new programs, plan charity events, pay for WiFi hotspots at volunteer site and
countless other activities. Most importantly, the Nannes 3L Challenge provides
funding so students have opportunities to bond with their peers, engage with
the community, and further their education outside of the classroom.
