Baylor Law School Firm Challenge

The Challenge is ON!

Baylor Law School kicks-off the inaugural Firm Challenge


The Firm Challenge affords law firms comprised of eight or more Baylor Lawyers an opportunity to participate in a friendly competition of giving with your fellow Baylor Lawyers at other firms. The goal of the Firm Challenge is for 100% of the alumni in participating firms to make a gift of any amount to Baylor Law School. Winning firms receive prominent signage in the Career Development Office and public recognition in the Docket Call, Rocket Docket and on Baylor Law's website. We invite your firm to be a founding firm in Baylor Law's first ever Firm Challenge! For more information, email Berkley Knas or call Berkley at 254.710.4346.
