Stanford Law School’s mission is to educate the next generation of lawyers and leaders. Our unparalleled faculty and small class size distinguish the law school, as does our commitment to experiential learning through a robust clinical program and a growing policy lab. Through your support, we are able to offer this education to a diverse and qualified student body, regardless of our applicants’ financial means.

I hope all alums appreciate the law school enough to give generously to the law school. I, like the faculty generally, am a donor myself. I'm an alum who is grateful for the education I've had and get a close look at the education new students are getting because I'm here teaching. I can't think of a better way to express that recognition than by helping.

Robert Weisberg, JD '79, Edwin E. Huddleson, Jr. Professor of Law
