Campaign Priorities

In addition to our overall goal of $10 million, we hope to engage alumni and friends throughout the campaign by accomplishing the following: 

  • Double the number of Dean’s Circle or above Donors 
  • Increase Annual Fund giving to $500,000 or more
  • Increase the percentage of alumni who give to the Law School
  • Increase the Law School’s endowment through additional endowed gifts, such as 
    • New endowed scholarships
    • New endowed public service/loan payment assistance stipends
    • New named endowed professorships and/or chair


Every gift matters, no matter the size. The Law School recognizes the generosity of its donors through giving levels:
     The Leaders’ Circle $10,000+
     The Founders’ Circle $5,000 – $9,999
     The Barristers’ Circle $2,500 – $4,999
     The Dean’s Circle $1,000 – $2,499
     Partners $500 – $999
     Advocates $250 – $499
     Counselors $100 – $249
     Associates up to $99

*Recognition is based on fiscal year cumulative giving totals (July-June) to Mercer Law funds.
