The Weinfeld Program is NYU School of Law's most prestigious donor recognition society. Instituted in 1989, it honors the legacy of alumnus Judge Edward Weinfeld by recognizing alumni and friends whose generosity exemplifies Judge Weinfeld's dedication and commitment to the Law School. Members of the Weinfeld Program commit to making annual gifts at varying levels to the Law School Annual Fund. Their dedication allows us to support multiple ongoing programs, as well as students and faculty. It also gives us the ability to respond quickly to the needs of the Law School.
