- The Case for Rutgers School of Law–Newark
Philanthropic contributions enhance the quality of legal education at Rutgers School of Law–Newark. The generous donations we receive support financial aid, including scholarships and loan repayment assistance, faculty support for research and centers, the law library, and the clinical program, as well as public service, student organizations, and new initiatives.
As New Jersey’s premier public research university, Rutgers derives part of its revenue from state appropriations. However, since 1989 students have paid an increasingly larger share of the costs of a Rutgers education. Even prior to the current financial crisis, New Jersey is one of only four states in the nation to see a reduction in state appropriations for colleges and universities. Now more than ever, your support is crucial. Please read on for The Case for Rutgers School of Law–Newark and see how you can give back to the law school.
We thank our alumni and friends for their generous support. View the Honor Roll of Donors to see contributors’ names for the 2010 fiscal year (July 1, 2009 - June 30, 2010).
