NIU College of Law Is Thousands Strong!
Scholarship support for students remains the law school’s top fundraising priority. We encourage you to support one of the following areas that we consider important sources of funds. Your gift will provide much needed financial assistance to the next generation of lawyers!
Dean’s Strategic Initiatives Fund – This fund allows the Dean to have maximum flexibility in addressing its most pressing needs. A portion of the fund provides Bar Prep Scholarships for graduates studying for the bar examination.
Leona S. Green Diversity Initiatives Fund – This fund is named in memory of the first and longest-tenured African American professor at the College of Law for her commitment to students, service to the law school, and for being a champion of diversity throughout her career. It will provide financial support for diversity and racial and social justice initiatives, including student scholarships and programming. Help us reach our goal of raising $15,000 for this fund!
NIU Law Business Innovation Legal Clinic – This new College of Law Clinic will open Fall 2022 and offer high-quality, transactional legal assistance to primarily underrepresented entrepreneurs, small business owners and not-for-profit business organizations.
Leonard & Stacey Mandell Endowed Scholarship for the Study of Law – Former Associate Dean Lenny Mandell served the students for over 30 years. This scholarship in the College of Law will help us continue our recruiting efforts to further access, opportunity and diversity in the law and assist current students in need.
Clinics - Experiential learning opportunities are critical to provide hands-on learning experiences for our students to advocate on behalf of real clients under the supervision of clinical faculty who are experienced lawyers. This will support our Civil Justice, COVID-19, Criminal Defense, and Health Advocacy Clinics.
Daniel S. Reynolds Memorial Scholarship Fund - Few people have impacted the College of Law like Professor Emeritus Dan Reynolds. At his request, and in his memory, the College of Law has established this fund to help recruit applicants with excellent academic credentials.
