Law Firm Challenge
The Law Firm Challenge is an annual fundraising competition in which firms compete for the highest percentage of alumni participation and most dollars raised for Georgetown Law. In 2011-2012, the program involved more than 2,300 alumni at 57 firms.
Throughout the Challenge, volunteers (or "agents") at participating firms correspond with alumni colleagues and encourage them to support the Law Annual Fund. Gifts to the Fund provide critical resources for core programs including:
- Financial Aid
- Equal Justice Foundation (EJF) Summer Fellowships
- The Edward Bennett Williams Library
- Student Organizations
Note: Any gift to Georgetown Law, made by an alumnus/a from a participating firm (between July 1st and June 30th), counts toward Law Firm Challenge credit.
At the end of the competition, the names of those firms with 100% alumni participation are engraved on a plaque that's displayed outside the Office of Career Services - McDonough Hall. The names of those firms that raise the most money for Georgetown Law are engraved on a trophy that's kept in the Law Alumni Lounge - Hotung Intl. Law Building. All donors are recognized in the annual Honor Roll of Donors and on the Georgetown Law website.
