How you can help support The TU College of Law
The Annual Fund
Over the last 90 years, The University of Tulsa College of Law has provided thousands of students from Oklahoma and across the country with the opportunity to receive an outstanding legal education and pursue successful careers. Today, graduates of TU Law serve as local, state, and federal judges, elected officials, top defense attorneys and prosecutors, successful attorneys at many prominent law firms, and leaders in an array of industries. TU Law’s alumni also serve low-income people and work for non-profit organizations as public interest lawyers.
Today, TU Law is ranked among the top 100 law schools in the United States. The College of Law is widely recognized for its rigorous academic programs, its outstanding faculty, and its high graduate employment rates. TU Law students benefit from generous financial aid, small class sizes, and cutting-edge experiential and clinical legal education programs that will ensure they succeed in their careers.
The College of Law’s Annual Fund: Why your support matters
A key factor in the College of Law’s ability to maintain and enhance its stature as one of the nation’s top law schools is the Annual Fund. Your annual and unrestricted contributions to this fund give Dean Lyn Entzeroth the essential flexibility to provide financial resources when and where they are needed most each year at TU Law. The Annual Fund allows the Dean to offer crucial funding for the College’s academic priorities, address the most pressing needs for faculty and students, and take advantage of new opportunities as they arise each year.
The Annual Fund provides resources for the law faculty’s professional development and enables law students to participate in public interest law programs, pro-bono projects, and national legal competitions. In addition, your gift to the Annual Fund enables the College to expand diversity among the faculty and students, host public lectures on major legal issues, and strengthen alumni relations programs.
Just as important, your continuing support for the Annual Fund reflects the TU Law community’s shared commitment to the College and its tradition of providing students with a transformative educational experience.
Please express your support today for The University of Tulsa College of Law by making a generous contribution to the Annual Fund. You can make your donation online or contact Elizabeth Burden, Director of Development at TU Law, at email@example.com or by phone at 918-631-2462.
