The giving societies at California Western School of Law have been established to recognize the tremendous loyalty and generosity our supporters have expressed through their philanthropic giving. Society members are a distinguished part of the California Western community whose gifts demonstrate their ongoing commitment to our mission of training ethical, practice-ready lawyers.
The Juris Society
The Juris Society recognizes the individuals and organizations whose generous annual support maintains the core operations of the law school and strengthens programs of central importance to our mission. In honor of the outstanding generosity of our alumni and friends, members are recognized annually in four giving levels named to recognize their commitment to legal education and the practice of law.
- Juris Friends $1,000 to $2,499
- Juris Fellows $2,500 to $4,999
- Dean's Associates $5,000 to $9,999
- Dean's Partners $10,000 or more
Members of the Juris Society are recognized on the annual Donor Wall in the lobby of 350 Cedar Street and on the Donor Honor Roll webpage of the California Western website. They also receive invitations to various law school events throughout the year and a special Juris Society memento.
The Juris Legatum Society
The Juris Legatum Society recognizes those who have made a planned gift to California Western School of Law.

The Leland G. Stanford Circle
The Leland G. Stanford Circle, named after the founder of California Western, recognizes lifetime giving at the highest level, comprising a select group of individuals who have given and/or facilitated gifts totaling $100,000 or more. They receive all of the benefits granted to members of the Juris Society at the Dean's Partners level.
The Rising Leaders Society
The Rising Leaders Society recognizes loyal alumni who have graduated within the past ten years and have made gifts to the law school in three consecutive years. These future leaders of California Western support the law school above and beyond the value of their gifts by inspiring a culture of giving amongst their peers. Members receive the same benefits granted to members of the Juris Society.
