UC Irvine today announced a $20 million gift from business leader and philanthropist Donald Bren to support the university's recently established law school. In recognition of the gift, the school will be named the Donald Bren School of Law. "The gift provides tremendous momentum for our new law school," said Chancellor Michael V. Drake. Bren's gift endows 11 distinguished faculty chairs and a dean's chair for the school. This is the first public law school to open in California in more than 40 years, and it is expected to welcome its first class of students in fall 2009.
