2016 Law Firm Challenge Participation
Alumni and Giving

The USC Law Firm Challenge began in 2006 to further strengthen the connection between alumni, law firms, legal departments, and the USC Gould School of Law. Challenge participants aim for 100% alumni giving in their respective organizations, providing critical support to the law school and helping to bolster the law school's percentage of alumni support - a number crucial to the school's reputation.

With great appreciation, USC Gould acknowledges the 467 alumni at the 48 firms and companies who participated in the 2016 Law Firm Challenge. We extend a special thank you to the 15 winning firms, which won this year's Law Firm Challenge by reaching 100% alumni participation with every alumnus at the firms making a gift in support of USC Gould.
