Bluhm Legal Clinic Challenge

UPDATE: The 2017 Bluhm Clinic Challenge will kick-off on May 16. 

Please stop back next week to learn more about the this year's challenge and support the 2017 campaign. 


We are thrilled to announce an exciting week-long challenge that will help the Bluhm Legal Clinic at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law continue to thrive.  In an effort to help the Clinic increase the number of annual donors, an anonymous alumnus will make an extraordinary gift of $10,000 if 30 donors step up and make a gift to the Bluhm Legal Clinic in the next week.

Housing more than 20 clinics within 14 centers, the Bluhm Legal Clinic is widely recognized as one of the most comprehensive and effective clinical programs in the country. Through Northwestern Pritzker School of Law's clinical program, students gain direct experience representing clients and fine-tune their skills as advocates. Your donation will not only help current students, but also members of our community who would not otherwise have access to quality legal representation.

In March 2016, several 3L student participants got together to showcase some of their experiences in the Clinic through an event called, Stories from the Clinic. Several of the clips in the video above are from that special event. To watch all of the stories, you can access the full video at:
