All Ways Forward Campaign a Huge Success

University of Wisconsin Law School has completed the largest capital campaign in its history. UW–Madison launched its All Ways Forward comprehensive campaign in October 2015. As a part of this effort, the Law School set the goal of raising $35 million. UW ended its campus-wide campaign in December of 2021 with the Law School exceeding its goal with $49.8 million raised.

Outstanding Scholars

New faculty bring a wealth of knowledge and skill to UW Law School: Emily Cauble and Nyamagaga “Gaga” Gondwe as Tax Law professors, Bernadette Atuahene as the inaugural James E. Jones Chair, Rachel Burg as a clinical assistant professor and director of the Wisconsin Innocence Project, and Emily Buchholz as director of the Law and Entrepreneurship Clinic.

UW Law’s strategic plan unites new priorities with historical commitments. Ask Dean Dan Tokaji when work first began on the strategic plan that was approved by the faculty of the University of Wisconsin Law School this past May, and his answer is as clear and concise as the plan itself.
