Your Law Alumni Association board members and I hope that you will support our law school by participating in this year's Law Firm Challenge. As you know, Mason ranks among the top law schools in many key categories. As alumni, we can support our law school's standing in many ways, but the simplest way is with annual financial support. The Law Firm Challenge is a great way to support Mason Law. Not only could your firm earn some good-natured "bragging rights" and publicity, but you also will help raise the law school's alumni participation rate—a key metric of Tier I law schools like George Mason University School of Law.
The race begins October 3. More than two dozen of your fellow alumni at participating firms have volunteered as team captains to help and encourage their Mason Law colleagues to make a gift, thereby helping their firms to reach 100% alumni participation. While large contributions are always welcome, the name of the game is participation—every Mason Law alum at the participating firms giving something back to the School of Law.
Firms that achieve 100% Mason Law Alumni participation will earn recognition in a full-page advertisement in Virginia Lawyers Weekly in fall 2012. Alumni at those firms will be invited to a reception with Dean Polsby during fall 2012.
Your participation in The Law Firm Challenge is another chapter in the Mason Law success story. Join your fellow alumni in accepting the Challenge. Thank you for all you do for Mason law. Hope to see you soon!
