Campaign Progress

The Northwestern Pritzker School of Law Campaign, Motion to Lead, is the most ambitious campaign in the Law School’s history, with goals to raise $250 million and engage 10,000 donors.

Through the outstanding generosity of our alumni and friends, we are thrilled to announce that we exceeded our goal of 10,000 donors.

Make a GiftThere is more to be done… to address student debt, the changing legal profession, and the tremendous influences of technology and globalization. The Law School has outlined its path forward in a bold strategic plan, Leading Law. However, the plan's objectives can only be realized if the entire alumni community comes together. 

With this in mind, we are asking 2,000 additional donors to join our efforts. With your ongoing support, we move one step closer to our best tomorrow.

Today. Tomorrow. Together.
