The Power of Annual Leadership Gifts

Since 1987, the Dean's Council has developed into an invaluable resource for McGeorge. Dean Gordon D. Schaber created the Dean's Council to recognize alumni, faculty, staff, parents, and friends who support the law school at a leadership level.

The Dean's Council is a proud tradition that forms the cornerstone of our annual giving program. Donors at the Dean's Council level take satisfaction in knowing that their contributions, to the designation of your choice, have an immediate and direct impact on the students, faculty, and programs they support. Whether it is through funding a national trial competition, student scholarships, or providing resources to enhance our infrastructure — Dean's Council gifts embody the heart and soul of McGeorge and serve as a catalyst for future innovation and excellence.
