Private support accounts for roughly one-third of the Law School's operating budget; we now have about one-third of the school year left to complete. MLaw has already used as much as it received in tuition and state funding combined.

THANKS, DONORS!  Michigan Law hosted its first-ever Philanthropy Awareness Day March 13, a fun opportunity for the Law School community to appreciate how much alumni and friends do for Michigan Law. Individuals were encouraged to stop by a table outside Aikens Commons to receive an "I Benefit" sticker and treat, while posters and balloons scattered throughout the Law School called attention to the various ways donors support and enrich Michigan Law.
