UNC School of Law

For nearly 175 years, Carolina Law has prepared outstanding lawyers who shape communities in North Carolina and beyond. As we’re facing challenges from losing a third of our state support since 2009, we must look toward a new financial model in which private, philanthropic support plays a greater role. With your help, we can continue to deliver the exceptional value that a Carolina Law degree is known for and remain competitive in the current education environment.
