Development offices at our nation's law schools will likely be very busy this winter, as many of their graduates have recently raised millions of dollars in cash. According to a recent analysis of J3 Donor Watch's Graduate Degree Prospect Research List, Juris Doctorate holders sold more than $850 billion of stock during Q3 2014.

Topping the list with the largest stocks sales by their JD alumni are the University of Michigan, Harvard University, George Washington University, Stanford University, New York University, University of Oklahoma, University of California - Los Angeles and Boston University.

Overall, the University of Michigan Law School's alums sold more the $220 million worth of equities during Q3. The top selling grads include: Sam Zell (Chairman of Equity Group Investments), Larry Thompson (EVP, Government Affairs, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary at PepsiCo) and John B. Henneman III (former Chief Administrative Officer at Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corp).
