Support Faculty Excellence

Key to maintaining and building on Colorado Law’s tradition of excellence are the quality of the education we provide future lawyers and leaders and the quality of the research and programming we advance to drive legal, social, and entrepreneurial innovation. Maintaining and developing these strengths depends on retaining and attracting faculty members who have, or with the potential to have, national or international reputations for excellence.

Each year, Colorado Law risks losing top faculty members to other law schools with greater resources. Also, we struggle to offer competitive packages to faculty we are recruiting. We need donor support to ensure we maintain a robust faculty that delivers exceptional classroom and programmatic experiences for students and actively participates in and contributes to the national and international conversation on today’s most pressing legal issues.

Donors can endow faculty support and establish personal, professional or tribute legacies with gifts in the following amounts:

Law Chair $5 million
Law Professorship $1.5 million
Law Faculty Fellowship $250,000

If you would like to speak to someone on Law’s Advancement team about establishing a faculty endowment, please contact Jessica Helzer at (303) 492-0752 or jessica.helzer@colorado.edu.
