Partners in Leadership

The 2020 Partners in Leadership campaign runs May 1, through June 30, 2020.

The Partners in Leadership Challenge

Campaign Co-Chairs: Tyler Gerking ’02, Farella Braun + Martel; Monique Liburd ’08, Google; and David Zapolsky ’88,

Partners in Leadership is a cornerstone philanthropic program—led by alumni—to increase giving participation to Berkeley Law. In this era of declining state funding, the support of our alumni is more important than ever to help sustain our place among premier law schools worldwide, grow our innovative programs, and make a Berkeley Law education possible for the next generation torch-bearers in the legal profession. 

Since the launch of Partners in Leadership, over $13.3M has been raised for the Berkeley Law Fund and other important programs. We’re counting on you to help push the needle even further this year. 

The Challenge: Motivate all Berkeley Law alumni at 83+ organizations to make a meaningful gift before the close of the fiscal year. 

The Goal: 100% giving participation among Berkeley Law alumni at each participating firm and company. Also, beat competing organizations to the finish line!

Partners in Leadership runs May 1-June 30 at with stellar alumni captains at each firm or company leading the charge. All contributions to the Berkeley Law Fund support students.
