Posted 2020-02-10 9:54am


“ Words cannot express the gratitude I have for the scholarship you all have so kindly decided to offer me…You all have given me the opportunity to fulfill my destiny and for that I am forever grateful ! My son will one day be able to say that his mother was given a chance despite financial hardship, and this blessing can teach him that if you dream big enough, no obstacle will be big enough.”  -1L Student

 Each year, there are two days when we have a special focus on raising funds for our law school. The first is on Giving Day in February. The second is our Annual Hall of Fame event, which will be on November 6.

Please Support a Student's Dream

This Wednesday, February 12 is CSU Cleveland-Marshall Giving Day.

If you are considering donating to CSU Cleveland-Marshall any time this year for student scholarships or for any other purpose, please do it anytime on Wednesday. A "Donate" button will appear at this link early Wednesday morning.

We are seeking in-kind donations to offer donors on Giving Day.  For example, you can win a chance to enjoy a chef-created, 5-course dinner party for 4 guests at Tartine Bistro, owned by Dean Valore '99 and Anna Ferguson Valore '01. Do you have an experience or gift card you can donate to be raffled off on Wednesday? If so, please contact Amy Miller ( by tomorrow, February 11.

Please Nominate a Legend

The Cleveland-Marshall College of Law (C|M|LAW) Hall of Fame honors those exceptional leaders who have contributed to the past, present, and/or future success and reputation of C|M|LAW. The inductees include living and deceased alumni, faculty, deans, staff, and community leaders. Current full-time faculty and staff are not eligible. See Hall of Fame Selection Criteria

If you know someone who you believe should be inducted in our 2020 Hall of Fame, please nominate them by Friday, February 21. You can nominate here: nominations or please send your nomination to Amy Miller at

For a number of our students, a scholarship makes the difference between getting a legal education or sacrificing their dream.

 We are a law school on the rise. The teaching, scholarship, and service of our faculty has never been more impressive. The work of our staff has never been more tireless. The quality of our students has never been higher and their efforts never more inspiring. The support of our alumni and friends has never been stronger.

Please invest in the next generation of lawyer-leaders by making a tax deductible gift to Cleveland-Marshall College of Law on Wednesday at this link: CSU Cleveland-Marshall Giving DayNo contribution is too small.
