Vanderbilt Law School received a $12.75 million gift from Mark Dalton, JD’75 that is earmarked to endow the school’s Law and Business Program for perpetuity. Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos, stated, “This commitment not only addresses the law school’s current needs but looks well into the future, positioning this innovative program for success in the years to come. I’m delighted that Mark and his family have chosen to support the university in such a generous way.”
The Law and Business Program ensures its graduates have a strong foundation in business law, corporate management, accounting and finance. The program provides a certificate option for upper-level law students who don’t wish to pursue the three-year J.D./M.S.F. joint degree or the four-year J.D./MBA joint degree.
