Sponsorships

Your Gala sponsorship not only recognizes the accomplishments of our distinguished honorees before an anticipated audience of 375+ New York City-based leaders in law, business and public service. It also supports vital student scholarships, innovative academic centers, clinics, and programs, and faculty development at “New York’s Law School” in the heart of NYC’s legal, financial, government, and tech centers.

This year’s honorees hail from financial services, fashion, intellectual property, energy, and business immigration. Sponsorships are available at all levels, including the following.
