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.
On June 7, 2013 Dean Kellye Testy welcomed members of UW Law giving societies for a wine-paired reception at Delille Cellars in Woodinville, WA. Law school faculty, board and committee members were also on hand to celebrate and recognize members of the three giving societies. View photos
