Northwestern School of Law Receives Donation from Grad

The Northwestern University Law School has received a $1 million donation from corporate attorney David Savner and his wife, Libby, according to Crain’s Chicago Business. The donation was made to help fund a new technology classroom.

“When we considered making a gift to Northwestern Law, we became intrigued with contributing to new ways of learning in the law school setting,” Savner, who is an alum of the law school, said in a statement. “The idea of creating a classroom and technologies geared to interactive and collaborative learning became very exciting to us.”

The donation from the couple will be used to purchase hardware and software upgrades for the computers in the classroom as well as audiovisual equipment. Others items that will be purchased include flexible seating and mobile LED screens. The remainder of the money will be saved for tech upgrades to Savner Hall and tech training for employees.
