Student giving for the Class of 2010 reached a record high for the history of the school, and full-time faculty and staff giving is on pace with last year's participation numbers of 100 percent and 76 percent, respectively.

At Commencement, the Class of 2010 presented its gift of $30,000, the largest student gift in the history of the school, achieved with a record 55 percent student participation.

The gift will support the Class of 2010 Legacy Fund scholarships, which will be awarded to students with financial need whose character embodies the values of the class, including leadership and service to the law school and greater community. The scholarship will be awarded beginning fall 2010 through fall 2014, until the class' fifth year reunion.

Despite this good news, giving by alumni is down for schools across the country, including Albany Law School, with its alumni giving down by two percent. With less than four weeks left for the fiscal year, the school is counting on its alumni community and friends to close the gap.
