MSU College of Law

Honoring Our History, Building Our Future

A LEGAL EDUCATION IS EXPENSIVE. BUT YOU CAN HELP.

MSU Law is a private institution affiliated with a public university. We receive no funding from the university and instead rely on tuition revenue and donations from our alumni and friends. We’re proud to say MSU Law offers more than 50 donor-funded scholarships to students each year, and we believe we can do even better. With MSU Law’s new Annual Fund, we will expand scholarship opportunities for students, invest in cutting-edge curriculum, and increase the value of an MSU Law degree. We’re committed to educating the most passionate students, and we support them with scholarships that reflect the value of their hard work.

At Michigan State University, we’re building a law school that’s financially-accessible to bright, passionate students who will shape the laws of tomorrow and act as leaders not just in their profession, but in their communities as well. Whether we’re envisioning the future delivery of legal services, advocating for policy reforms and access to justice, or honing our students’ courtroom skills, you can be sure that Spartan lawyers WILL make a lasting impact at home and around the world.

Unrestricted annual gifts ensure that donations go where they’re most-needed. These gifts help pay for student scholarships, research opportunities, conferences, and new technology. The Annual Fund bridges the gap between budget and tuition, and assists the dean in responding immediately to what students need.
