Giving Societies

Our alumni and friends demonstrate the significance of leadership giving and inspire others to follow their example. UW School of Law has established giving societies to recognize the variety of ways that our alumni and friends generously support their law school in both annual giving and lifetime giving.

Marian Gould Gallagher Society

The Marian Gould Gallagher Society recognizes donors who have given $15,000 or more to the UW School of Law Library. The Society is named in honor of Mrs. Marian Gould Gallagher for her 37 year tenure as the Law Librarian and Professor of Law. During her time the law library tripled in size and the outstanding service ethic of its staff became legendary throughout the U.S. The Marian Gould Gallagher Law Library and giving society carry on Mrs. G’s legacy.
