Giving & Support


Many thanks to the alumni, faculty, staff, friends, corporations and foundations who annually support Cleveland State University's Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. Your gifts provide additional resources necessary for Cleveland-Marshall to continue to provide a high quality educational experience for our diverse student body. The College of Law's giving year runs from July 1 through June 30.

Your gifts to C|M|LAW help us provide the following:

  • Scholarship aid for full and part time students
  • Technological upgrades
  • Funds for Moot Court, Law Review, the Journal of Law and Health and other student activities
  • Faculty and staff development
  • Facilities and equipment
  • Support for the Law Library and its collections
  • Unrestricted operating support

Contributions to Cleveland-Marshall from generous alumni and friends take many forms and may be unrestricted or directed to the program of your choice. Your unrestricted gift to the Learn Law Live Justice Fund helps us meet the most critical needs of the College of Law as unrestricted dollars can be put to use immediately where the need is the greatest.

Why give to C|M|LAW? The College is state-assisted, not state-supported, and less than 30% of the cost of educating law students is covered by the state. With full-time resident tuition now more than $27,000 per year, your support is essential to providing our students with an excellent, yet affordable, education.

We invite you to support Cleveland-Marshall College of Law through a gift to the Cleveland State University Foundation which exists solely to raise, receive and manage private gifts for the advancement and benefit of the colleges that comprise Cleveland State University.

You may make a gift by visiting
