Faculty legacies

Faculty support in the form of an endowed chair or professorship provides a substantial reward and incentive for scholars who have made a significant impact in their field. Private support for summer research fellowships also greatly enhances the resources available to our faculty to further legal education by performing path-breaking research into cybersecurity, constitutional democracy, and intellectual property issues.
