A $3.2 million gift has been given to the Indiana University Maurer School of Law for the purpose of creating an endowed clinical professorship and to offer scholarships to Indiana high school graduates who will attend the school, according to a press release from the law school.

The Glenn and Donna Scolnik Clinical Chair was created with a $2 million gift from the couple. Glenn graduated from the law school in 1978. The chair will be held by the Conservation Law Center.

The Conservation Law Center is led by professor W. William Weeks, a 1979 graduate of the school. It is the first endowed chair for a clinical law professor in the law school’s history.

Scolnik chairs the private capital firm of Hammond, Kennedy, Whitney & Company Inc. in Indianapolis. He has been on the board of directors for the Conservation Law Center since 2006.

The remaining $1.25 million was given to the school by Kathleen Harrold to create the Bernard Harrold Endowed Scholarship. Full tuition will be provided to a third-year law school student each year from this gift. The money will be awarded to a student who has financial need and is in the top 25 of the class.

“We are honored and delighted by these generous gifts,” said Austen L. Parrish, dean of the law school and the James H. Rudy Professor of Law.

“The center not only provides our students a tremendous up-close view of what it’s like to practice law, but also shows how public service is an important part of a professional career. The Scolnik Chair will be instrumental in allowing the Conservation Law Center to continue this important work.”

Parrish also said that some 90 percent of the students at the law school receive scholarships. They experience an average annual grant of $25,000.

“Gifts such as Mrs. Harrold’s help us make an outstanding legal education affordable to our students, and we are deeply grateful,” he said. “As a result of recent alumni generosity, the cost of attending the law school has been reduced.”
