Champions Challenge 2023

This February, we will come together for a 36-hour university wide Giving Day event. Putting our own special twist on the name, “AUWCL’s Champions Challenge” has become a much-anticipated annual occurrence. We deeply appreciate the generosity of every donor and hope you will join us by making a contribution to AUWCL during Champions Challenge.

We Champion What Matters and believe in making legal education accessible. Your support helps us sustain the extraordinary education and experience of our students.


Every year, our community comes together during the 36-hour Champions Challenge with one goal: to make a difference for AUWCL. This year, AUWCL is highlighting the newly established Dean’s Innovation Fund. The Dean’s Innovation Fund will support creative, cutting-edge initiatives such as ESG and the Dean’s Professionalism Certificate.
