The University of Miami School of Law owes special thanks to a select group of alumni who have made a vital commitment to help the School continue its growth as a premier educator of tomorrow's leaders. This group, along with other friends of the Law School, are members of an elite group of donors known as the Dean's Circle.

Annual membership starts with a contribution of $1,000 (Judges $500 to $999*). These donations not only benefit the Law School, but they also benefit you. All contributions are tax deductible. Further, as a Dean's Circle member, you will be invited to a variety of lunches, receptions and other events throughout the year.

  • Friends ($2,500 to $4,999)
