New Giving Societies

New Giving Societies

To better recognize the loyalty and generosity our supporters express through annual gifts, the Development department has updated the Giving Societies at California Western.

Juris Society
While this esteemed group has retained its name, it now offers more benefits to members than ever. In addition to recognition on the Donor Wall and Honor Roll of Donors,Juris Society members receive a subscription to our special donor newsletter, The Juris Insider, invitations to various law school events throughout the year, and a Juris Society memento.

Juris Legatum Society
Recognizes those who have made a planned gift to California Western.

Leland G. Stanford Circle
Named after the founder of California Western, recognizes lifetime giving at the highest level, comprising a select group of individuals and couples whose lifetime giving totals $100,000 or more.

In addition to all benefits offered to Juris Society members, Juris Legatum and Stanford Circle members receive special mementos to commemorate their inspiring gifts.

Rising Leaders Society
Recognizes loyal alumni who have graduated within the past 10 years and have made gifts to the law school in three consecutive years. Members receive the same benefits granted to members of the Juris Society.

The Donor Wall will be updated to reflect these new changes in January 2015 for the 2014 calendar year. For more information regarding these new societies, please visit the Development webpage at or contact the Development department at
