The Law Firm Challenge Program
The Columbus School of Law

The Law Firm Challenge Program at The Columbus School of Law emphasizes personal contributions from alumni at participating firms in support of the annual fund, scholarships, academic programs and clinics, centers, student organizations and the Law Library.

The race runs from January 1 to April 30 of every year but all gifts and pledges made between May 1 and April 30 will count toward the Challenge. 

The Challenge is open to any firm or organization employing five or more CUA Law Alumni. To ensure that you compete against organizations of comparable size, the Challenge is broken into two or three categories.

Each organization is required to have one or two representatives to compete. These representatives serve as volunteers for the law school and help facilitate the challenge at the firm.
