A Law School Shows Everything That’s Wrong With Law Schools and U.S. News Rankings, In One Email


Dear Fellow Class of 2011 Alumnus/Alumna,

First, I apologize for the email blast, but I do hope that this email finds you in good health and in happy times – and perhaps on a beach somewhere enjoying the summer.

Getting down to business, I would like to let you know a little secret about helping out Cardozo move up the rankings.

Did you know that one of the factors that US News considers in its rankings is percentage of alumni who participate in annual giving?

It’s true. Your gift to the law school can actually increase the value of your own degree.

It does other things, too, like funding scholarships, new clinical programs, public interest summer stipends, and post grad fellowships – all the things that help the next generation of Cardozo lawyers.

I’m writing to you today to ask you to join me in supporting the law school and educating the next generation through annual giving. And the size of the gift does not matter. Every gift of any size counts.

I know money may be tight and, if you are like me, you may still be making a contribution to your legal education in loan payments every month. But, by helping out the school, it increases the value of what we have already put our hard earned time and money into. Something that I know I’m willing to do.

If you want to join me (and I sincerely hope you do), all it takes in a couple minutes and any amount you can spare to make your gift online.

If you already made your gift, thank you for your generosity. Let’s make this the most successful annual fund campaign ever. Let’s put the class of 2011 at the very top of the list of class giving. Let’s give back.
