Please remember California Western in your will. All it takes is a quick phone call to your lawyer to add a charitable gift to your will, using the following language:

“I give to California Western School of Law, San Diego, California $_____ or _____% of the residue of my estate, to be used by the school [for its general purposes] OR [according to a statement of intent previously agreed to by California Western School of Law and me]."

Please let us know when you add California Western to your will so that we may express our appreciation and recognize you as an honored member of California Western’s Juris Legatum Society, granting you all membership benefits. Learn more about California Western’s giving societies.
