Sumner Redstone, 90, who graduated from Harvard College, is the majority owner and Chairman of the Board of the National Amusements theater chain. Through National Amusements, Sumner Redstone and his family are majority owners of CBS Corporation and Viacom which itself is the parent company of MTV Networks, BET, and the film studio Paramount Pictures.

The foundation gave donations of $18 million to Boston University’s School of Law in September 2012, and according to the ABA Journal the foundation also gave a gift of $10 million to the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts in January 2013.

Harvard Law School has educated a significant number of leaders and innovators in the business world. In addition, Harvard Law School has also produced a large number of luminaries in law and politics including current President Barack Obama.
