Community of Champions

In keeping with the Tournament of Championsí spirit and goals to both inspire and challenge our future trial advocates to be their best, the "Community of Champions" seeks to challenge you, Maryland Law alumni and friends, to give your best by supporting the newly created Advocacy Fund at Maryland. Your participation will undoubtedly lead to future team success.

Advocacy Fund

The Tournament of Champions places Maryland Law on a national stage for elite trial advocacy. In response, the School of Law created the Advocacy Fund to commemorate the 2006 National Championship that brought the Tournament to Maryland. The Advocacy Fund is an unrestricted account that will provide funding for National Trial Team and Moot Court competitions. The fund will provide resources for things such as:

  • Entrance fees for invitational competitions.
  • Travel expenses for team members and coaches.
  • Travel for additional non-competing team members to assist in trial preparation.
  • Diagrams, charts and displays used during competitions.

Giving Opportunities

As a donor to the Community of Champions, you will be:

  • Recognized at the Maryland Law Kickoff Celebration on Tuesday, October 28 (Gifts of $25,000 or more will receive special recognition).
  • Acknowledged as a donor on the Maryland Law Tournament of Champions website.
  • Listed in the 2008 annual report of gifts.
