The gift was announced on December 17 and Neil Bluhm, who is the co-founder of JMB Realty Corp. in Chicago, reported in a statement that he was “inspired by the vision of Dean Daniel Rodriguez and his goals for the law school’s mission and future,” according to Bloomberg News. Bluhm co-founded JMB Realty in 1970 with college roommate Judd D. Malkin. The donation is part of a $25 million gift to the university. Neil Bluhm and the Bluhm Family Charitable Foundation announced a $25 million gift to Northwestern, of which $15 million is earmarked for the University’s School of Law.
