New York Law School announced on Wednesday that it had received a $20 million gift from the Starr Foundation. According to this story:
The donation has been given in the name of The Starr Foundation Chairman Maurice Greenberg, an alumnus of the law school, which he attended using scholarship money he received after serving in the Army during World War II. Greenberg is the former chairman and chief executive officer of insurance giant American International Group Inc. He retired from that position in 2005.\
This is apparently one of the 20 largest law school gifts ever. I wonder if it's #1 for a stand-alone law school. In any case, this is great news for New York Law.
