Make a Gift; Create a Lasting Impact

We know that economic uncertainties continue nationwide and also here in Louisiana. With looming state budget cuts, your charitable gifts to the LSU Law Center are more important than ever. From scholarships to program initiatives, private philanthropy provides critical funding for the LSU Law Center.

As the end of 2010 draws near, we hope that your personal circumstances will allow you to consider a charitable gift to the Law Center. We need your annual support as well as endowment gifts that "give in perpetuity." Your past contributions have enabled the Law Center to enhance its Tradition of Excellence and to secure its place as the state's premier public law school. Thank you! For more information on how to give to the Law Center, read further.
