Fundraising Priorities

Since its founding in 1903, Washburn Law has been unwavering in its commitment to providing students the best possible legal education. It has been steered with deliberate intent and forethought. The focus on highly talented faculty, small classes, and incredibly high standards has been the hallmark of the school since its beginning. To continue these strong traditions, we need to continue to invest in four key areas:

  • A new School of Law building
  • Scholarships
  • Faculty & Programs
  • Annual Fund

A new School of Law building, at the corner of 21st Street and Washburn Avenue, will provide a 21st century learning and technology environment for our students. It will also provide a much-needed second courtroom, interior spaces that encourage collaboration, and more space for our Washburn Law Clinic and Centers for Excellence. We also need to provide more scholarships so we can continue to attract the best and brightest students, and provide funding for faculty who are focused on teaching. The fourth priority – the Annual Fund – is what has helped us sustain our solid commitment to students by helping us take advantage of unexpected opportunities.

We need everyone’s help in achieving these bold goals and to build on our rock-solid foundation. If you have any questions on how you can help move Washburn Law forward, please contact us.
