Our Benefactors

CLL FlowersAlumni gifts and endowments strengthen and preserve our collections, and enhance and maintain our building. Most of all, gifts and endowments allow alumni and friends to maintain a meaningful relationship with one of the finest and most beautiful law libraries in the country.

Specific endowments have included the following:

  • Collections in a specific subject area, for example, Foreign, Comparative, and International Law
  • Financial assistance to bring experts to the library and law school
  • Funds to add materials to a specific collection
  • Journal and online database subscriptions
  • Physical acquisitions, for example study carrels and desks
  • Fresh flowers, delivered weekly to the library from 1989 to 2011, to enhance the beauty of our reading room.
