Wake Forest School of Law’s annual 3L Campaign, which benefits the annual Wake Forest Fund for the School of Law, has one of the best participation rates in the country among top tier law schools.
Wake Forest’s class gift record surpassed other top law schools’ all-time participation rates including those at Harvard, Columbia, and Georgetown law schools.
In a recent informal poll of class gift records among several top law schools, Wake Forest’s record participation rate of 85 percent, achieved by the class of 2000, ranked third behind the all-time rates of the University of California-Berkeley Boalt Hall School of Law and the University of Virginia School of Law.
“Our consistently high participation rate says a lot about the value of a Wake Forest law degree and the loyalty of our students and alumni,” said Wake Forest Director of Law School Development and Alumni Relations Holly Marion.
Despite the daunting job market for graduating law students, this year’s 3L Campaign yielded a 67 percent participation rate and raised more than $8,000, drawing high praise from faculty and staff.
Each year, a group of third-year students serve on the 3L Campaign Committee, which organizes the campaign and encourages classmates to make a gift to the Wake Forest Fund for the School of Law. The Fund benefits every aspect of the Wake Forest law school experience including legal clinics, trial teams, student scholarships, research stipends, and special student events.
