Giving back and staying connected have been longtime traditions at the University of New Mexico School of Law. Alumni, faculty and friends, and their financial support are among the school's greatest assets.
As a result of your generosity, deserving students receive scholarships, our world-class faculty obtains support for research and teaching and many much-needed resources are provided to help maintain the rigorous academic standards and the special and unique culture found at the UNM School of Law.
A Law School Critical Needs Fund
This ever-important and operationally critical fund for recruitment, retention and student support allows financial assistance to go directly where it is needed and allows our Dean vital flexibility in how it is distributed among students.
A Law School Critical Needs Fund
In an era of budget reductions, more than ever, gifts to the Dean's Fund are truly one of our most precious resources. These crucial unrestricted contributions empower our law school Dean to not only identify, but to immediately meet the school's most critical needs.
The UNM School of Law takes its commitment to Indian law students and the Indian law program and community seriously. Funding for student scholarships allows us to recruit and retain Native American applicants from New Mexico and around the country and to support their legal education needs.
Established to unite law school graduates and friends in a shared calling for the law school - to honor, through action and gift, the importance of legal education. These gifts will ensure student retention and stability, now and into the future, by actively and continually enlarging an endowment that will provide as many permanent full-tuition scholarships as our gifts will allow.
In addition to their tireless commitment to students inside and outside the classroom, the faculty is engaged in their own scholarship - requiring long hours of research and at times travel. Faculty support funding offers deeply needed resources that keep our faculty strong and rewarded for their important work.

Corporate matching gifts are a simple way to increase your own giving. Simply include your matching form with your pledge.
By taking advantage of your company's matching gift benefit, you can create a gift that may double or triple your contribution. It's simple: check with your company's human resources department to see if the company, or a friend or family member's company, matches gifts.
