Support Our Vision of Competence, Conscience, and Compassion

Amicus Fund –
formerly known as Strategic Initiatives Fund

The predecessor to The Amicus Fund was originally established in 2009 to help provide financial resources needed to sustain the law school’s most vital programs and to launch initiatives that will advance our distinctive strengths and better prepare our students for the challenges of tomorrow’s workplace.

Camilla Amato JD '20“If today I am closer to achieving my goal, it is definitely thanks to generous donors who have helped me along the way. All these scholarships are a reminder that many people believe in me, and I am beyond grateful for all the extraordinary support I have received from donors and the Santa Clara community.”

– Camilla Amato, JD ’20, past scholarship recipient

Stephanie Burns JD '95“I created an endowed scholarship at Santa Clara University School of Law with the goal of increasing diversity and affordability for students who are interested in pursuing a career in tech and IP law. As a graduate of the High Tech Law Institute, I wanted to give back to a top ranked program that prepared me well for my own legal career.”
