Donors qualify for membership in the Dean’s Council by contributing $2,500 or more to the Law School during the fiscal year (July 1 – June 30).  Any matching gift will be included in your recognized total.  Young alumni may qualify for the Dean’s Council at a lower level. 


Annual donors of $2,500 or more belong to the Dean’s Council.  Within this group are included members of The Chancellor’s Circle, The George Wythe Society, and The President’s Council.  In addition to invitations to the annual fall Dean’s Council Dinner, members are invited to attend the annual spring Dean’s Council Reception during Alumni Weekend. 

Members of the Dean’s Council also receive personal communications from the Dean, notice of special events, a commemorative gift, and special acknowledgement in the Honor Roll of the Law School Annual Report. This report is also published on the Law School’s web site.
