Kirkland & Ellis Pledges $2.75M to Stanford Law School
Dean Larry Kramer is quoted by Karen Sloan in The Recorder on the new Kirkland & Ellis Scholars Program and how it will help the school's efforts in transforming legal education.
Kirkland & Ellis has pledged $2.75 million to Stanford Law School over the next five years to fund expanded clinical programs, new student awards and a series of panels and symposia on the legal profession, the school announced Thursday.
The firm is donating the money through its foundation and through matching gifts from Kirkland partners.
"This generous support from Kirkland & Ellis will enable Stanford Law School to continue to transform legal education and prepare the next generation of leaders through innovative, interdisciplinary and international programs, new and expanded forms of clinical education, and a renewed commitment to public service," said Stanford Law Dean Larry Kramer.
