Record 30.68 Percent of Alumni Contribute to the FSU Law School

College of Law Dean Donald J. Weidner

TALLAHASSEE — A record 30.68 percent of Florida State University College of Law alumni made cash contributions to the law school during the 2013-14 fiscal year, which ended June 30. This rate exceeds previous results that placed Florida State among the nation’s top 10 law schools in terms of alumni contribution rate, according to the most recently published American Bar Association data. Those data also showed that Florida State’s giving rate was more than triple the giving rate of any other Florida law school.
“We would not have achieved this wonderful result without the help of the more than 100 alumni who volunteered to serve as class agents,” said College of Law Dean Donald J. Weidner. “Alumni who contribute financially also support the school in other ways, such as by bringing job opportunities to our students.”

A 2014 National Law Journal report rates Florida State as Florida's #1 law school, and the nation's 25th best, in terms of job placement.
