Ways to Engage

Your willingness to engage with the law school throughout your life offers many unique opportunities to make profound, positive impacts on both you and UNT Dallas College of Law. Individuals really do make a difference to our students and to our law school.

There are many important ways you can contribute, whether you are an alumni or a friend, a student’s family member or supporter, or someone interested in the mission and goals of UNT Dallas College of Law.


If you are a graduate or former student (both are alumni), a long-time supporter, or a new friend interested in staying engaged through the  Alumni & Friends organization, please update your contact information.



As a young law school, we have much work to do to keep tuition affordable while providing more scholarships, bar prep support, and other opportunities to our students. Please consider making an annual investment in the College of Law. No matter the amount, your financial commitment at any level will always be greatly appreciated.
