Thank you, Lanny and Sharon Martin!
One of the great pleasures of being the Dean at Northwestern Law is getting to know our school’s alumni—a remarkable group of people who have gone from this school to achieve many extraordinary accomplishments. I’m doubly fortunate that I get to talk with alumni who appreciate what the school made possible for them and who want to give back in some way. These conversations are invariably enjoyable and enlightening. We discuss what’s working well at the Law School, and what can be done to make the school even better for future generations of students.
Two of the people I’ve been able to get to know in this way are Lanny and Sharon Martin. It is with gratitude and pride that I announce that the Martins have made a $10 million unrestricted gift to the Law School.
This remarkable gift will have a lasting impact on the Law School. It will enrich opportunities for our students and allow innovations that will further prepare our students to become leaders in the profession.
I am deeply grateful for Lanny and Sharon’s extraordinary gift. We will use these funds responsibly and ambitiously to bring Northwestern Law to the highest level of excellence.
