Corporate Giving

Stanford Law School collaborates with corporations, law firms, and foundations through various sponsorship opportunities. Companies have the opportunity to connect with our world-class faculty and students, help solve specific legal research issues, and bridge the gap between academia and the real world. Stanford Law School offers two program-specific affiliate sponsorship opportunities in order to contribute to and sustain research and teaching in areas of interest. Additionally, companies may offer scholarship support to students, give to specific initiatives, or create a partnership around policy or research projects.

Stanford Law School offers law firms, corporations, and foundations the opportunity to participate as Program Affiliates and event sponsors in two distinct interdisciplinary programs, The Rock Center for Corporate Governance (RC) and The Stanford Program in Law, Science & Technology (LST). Program Affiliates provide annual support for teaching and program development; in return, affiliates and their clients gain access to Stanford Law School’s leading-edge executive programs and exclusive affiliate working groups. These programs bring together renowned scholars, lawyers, corporate leaders, investment bankers, accountants, venture capitalists, technologists, and key regulatory officials to share their expertise and discuss critical challenges facing legal practitioners, business executives, and policy makers. Affiliates also have opportunities to underwrite events hosted by program areas as well as law school student organizations and journals. Underwriters and their programs are formally recognized at sponsored events, in publications, and online.
