Order of St. Thomas More

Members of the Order of St. Thomas More make annual gifts to Notre Dame Law School and help educate the next generation of Notre Dame lawyers—lawyers who view the law as a powerful force for good in the world.

The Order of St. Thomas More is named after St. Thomas More, the patron saint of lawyers and civil servants. As the nation’s oldest Catholic law school, Notre Dame Law School echoes the mission of St. Thomas More—to serve humanity with uncompromising ethical and moral standards through education in justice and law. Gifts from Order of St. Thomas More members provide critical financial assistance for law students, making their dream of a mission-driven legal education a reality.
