Meeting a need

When you give to the School of Law, you let us use your gift toward our greatest and most urgent areas of need.  

You support scholarships, mission, academics, programs, faculty development and all other efforts to reinforce the Creighton experience for our students. 

You help us shape a new generation of service-minded lawyers and judges ready to face the future and improve our world. 

Since 1929, when the first full-tuition scholarship was awarded, we’ve relied on our alumni and the community to invest in our students. We’re proud of this tradition, which — thanks to you — is still going strong. 

You can make a difference today!

A foundation of values

As our alumni know, Creighton's School of Law provides our students with intellectual challenge, academic rigor and an opportunity to form a foundation of values for lifelong service in the law.  

With a new dean, Joshua Fershée, JD, at the helm, we will fulfill our promise as America’s Jesuit law school

We will continue to educate the attorneys of tomorrow in a tradition of service, ethics and compassion. We will expand opportunities for clinics and externships, giving our students hands-on legal experience and continuing to increase the level of service Creighton offers our community. 

And we will build a foundation based on trust, faith and hope — trust in each other. Faith in our institution and values. And hope that working together, for and with others, we can build a better and more just future for all.

The reach of your gift

“Your generosity makes the Creighton experience possible for students like me. But the reach of your gift goes much further. I will take into my community all the skills and values I’m learning. My Jesuit education will inform every encounter with every client I ever serve. When you give, you’re not just helping me; you’re helping everyone I will ever help as a Creighton lawyer.”

— César Magaña Linares, School of Law
