- The Case for Rutgers School of Law–Newark
Since 2006 our graduating classes have given a class gift as their legacy to Rutgers School of Law–Newark. The enthusiasm and desire of young graduates to thank, give back and support the law school is evident in their high participation rates.
In 2009 a new tradition was born: a class fund competition among graduating and current students to determine which class will have the highest participation rate, and consequently, bragging rights!
Young alumni and current students are now recognized in our annual Honor Roll of Donors for their gifts to their class funds and all other law school funds.
Participation rates by class for the 2011 competition are:

In addition to the 175 students who made a gift to their class fund, 21 professors and staff of the law school also participated, and BARBRI gave another generous donation to the graduating class of 2011. Overall student participation this year is 21%, up from 19.2% Since the competition began almost $10,000 has been raised, $6,900 of that was generated this year!
Special thanks to Dean Farmer and BARBRI for their generous support of the competition kickoff party. And kudos to the class co-chairs for their energy, persistence and creativity:
Class of 2011: Heidi Arnesen, Zaara Bajwa, Brian Biglin, Rob Menendez
Class of 2012: Guillermo Artiles, Amanda Curley, Andrew Yu

The Class of 2012 co-chairs are already planning ways to outdo the Class of 2011. Additional gifts to any of the class funds can be made at any time by anyone. Download a gift/pledge form! For more information, please e-mail or call the development office at 973-353-5094.
