Fordham Law Firm Challenge
The Fordham Law Firm Challenge encourages alumni within each firm to support the Dean’s programs and initiatives through the Fordham Law Fund. The Challenge provides a unique opportunity for alumni at firms to make a difference by increasing giving participation while simultaneously advancing Fordham Law’s reputation of excellence in the legal community. The overall Firm Challenge competition started in July 2012 and ends on June 30, 2013 and the March Challenge provides added prizes for alumni and firms that give early. During this March Challenge, firms who reach 100% alumni giving by March 30, 2013 will receive a named locker in the new building AND each alumnus who donates $100 or more will receive their own personalized locker.
