Vanderbilt Announces $10M Donation To Law School

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Vanderbilt University announced on Wednesday that an alumnus and Board of Trust member has donated $10 million to the law school.

Justin Ishbia graduated from the Vanderbilt School of Law in 2004 and is the founder and managing partner of Shore Capital Partners, according to a news release from the school.

Law school Dean Chris Guthrie said the donation will be used to recruit and support top students. It will also fund a building renovation project that will add classroom space and create a student support suite.

Ishbia in 2015 established a scholarship to provide financial support for Law School students. He also is a member of the Vanderbilt Law School Board of Advisors.
