This past May I posted about a $51 million gift to the Marquette University Law School toward construction of a new facility. Now, while the ELS Blog rarely posts off-topic news, this additional news promises to be another important moment for the Marquette University Law School.
Joseph J. Zilber, Milwaukee philanthropist, real estate developer and Chairman of the Board of Zilber Ltd., a real estate holding company, announced a $30 million gift to the Marquette University Law School. The University press release is here and here. Mr. Zilber, who graduated from the Marquette University Law School in 1941, has directed that $5 million of the gift be used to support construction of the Law School and that $25 million be associated with law student scholarships.
