Campus West Apartments—just steps away from SU College of Law!

Campus West has everything a Syracuse University law student needs - fully-furnished apartments, computer center, modern fitness room and much more! So many alumni have asked us about the apartments, we wanted to share pictures and an update about the newest housing option for law students at SU!

A Special Thanks to our Alumni and Friends

Many thanks to our alumni and friends that made an annual gift prior to year end. It’s not too late to be counted among this year’s donors. The strength of the LAW ANNUAL FUND rests on participation. Every donation to the LAW ANNUAL FUND, including yours, matters. Please make your gift today. Click here.

 

Law School Building Campaign Update – Approaching Our Goal!

The need for a reimagined facility began to emerge in fall 2004. Dineen Hall, the new home of the College of Law, will provide a cohesive teaching and learning space that will advance legal education at Syracuse and bring us all together in one space. Through the generosity of many of you, we find ourselves just $10 million away from our $46 million fund raising goal!

To find out how you can support Dineen Hall, please contact Alexandra Epsilanty L'92 at epsilan@law.syr.edu or call 315-443-1964. Join us we redefine legal education at Syracuse.
