Dickinson Law alumni are an active and engaged group, making significant contributions to the legal community and their alma mater. No matter where your career has taken you, there are many ways to remain connected to the Law School.

Make a Gift

You may also choose to give back to Dickinson Law by making a gift to support student scholarship—a gift that helps make the dream of pursuing a legal education a reality for our students. There are many ways to make your gift: from stocks, mutual funds, bequests and trusts to endowments and unrestricted gifts. Every contribution, however large or small, makes a difference in the life of the Law School and the lives of our students.

Our Development team is happy to work with you to identify the opportunities that are right for you. Please visit Ways to Give for a complete overview of available giving options that support our students.
