Answer the Summons for Student Success on Giving Tuesday, November 28!

We’re summoning you on November 28, Giving Tuesday, to join us in a transformative initiative: Summons for Student Success.

Make a Gift

Just like a legal summons calls individuals to action, we're rallying our community to act on behalf of our students’ dreams and aspirations. Financial barriers too often obstruct the path to a legal education, leaving immense potential untapped and aspirations unfulfilled.

Our student body is about 50% First Gen college. Many have families and other financial obligations. And you’re familiar with the cost of living in Los Angeles. Help us continue to attract, retain, and support amazing students who will go on to serve their clients and the legal profession with distinction.

By answering the summons on Giving Tuesday, your gift will help our students buy books, excel in externships, and learn the knowledge and skills they need to excel in the legal profession. Help us tip the scales in favor of student opportunity and success.  

A gift to the Annual Fund, whether great or small, will provide essential, unrestricted support that enables us to respond to student needs, advance academic programs, and offer other initiatives that will benefit our entire student body.

THANK YOU in advance for answering our Summons for Student Success.
