Law Firm Challenge 2015
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.
Challenge winners - those who reach 100% participation and the firms with the highest percentage of USC Law Leadership Society members - receive special recognition for their role in strengthening the legendary Trojan Network while enhancing the profile of their firms and organizations.

Dear Fellow Alumni:
I am honored to serve as chair of the 2015 Law Firm Challenge. Since its inception in 2006, the Challenge has provided crucial support to USC Gould and has demonstrated the incredible strength of the Trojan Network. This year's Law Firm Challenge will mark the final year of Dean Robert Rasmussen's tenure as the head of our law school, and I hope we will celebrate his years of leadership with our most successful Challenge to date.
Indeed, there is a lot to celebrate. This year's entering class was the most impressive in USC Gould's history. In fact, Gould showed more improvement than any other law school in the Top 20. This was, in part, thanks to your generosity. Last year's Law Firm Challenge provided scholarships, supported clinical opportunities, and, through your participation, demonstrated to our current and prospective students the strength of our alumni network.
When making your gift, I hope you will consider joining the USC Law Leadership Society, a wonderful community of Gould alumni and friends. Your membership gift will increase both your personal involvement with the law school and the impact of your firm's participation in the Law Firm Challenge.
If your firm or company is not yet part of the Challenge, click here to sign up. Please join me in investing in our alma mater and supporting the students we will soon be privileged to call colleagues.
