Established as the first of its kind in 1998, the program has grown to become one of the largest, engaging more than 2,500 alumni at 56 firms worldwide.

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 the following programs:

  • Financial Aid/Student Scholarships
  • Clinics
  • Journals
  • Centers and Institutes
  • Equal Justice Foundation (EJF) Summer Fellowships
  • The Edward Bennett Williams Library
  • Student Organizations

It’s important to note that any gift made to Georgetown Law by an alumnus/alumna at a participating firm (between July 1st and June 30th) counts for Law Firm Challenge credit.

At the end of the competition, the names of the firms that reach 100% alumni participation are engraved on a plaque that’s displayed outside the Office of Career Services. The names of the firms that raise the most money for the Law Center (in their respective groups) are engraved on a trophy that’s kept in the Law Alumni Lounge. All donors are recognized on the Georgetown Law website.

For more information about the Law Firm Challenge, please contact the Law Annual FundĀ via email or 202-662-9500.
