On April 24, the Chapman Law community celebrated a generous gift made by alumna Dr. Zeinab Dabbah and her husband, Dr. Daniel Temianka. Because of their donation, Lecture Hall 142 has been renamed and dedicated in honor of current Chapman Law Professor Frank J. Doti.

“It was the quality of education that Zeinab received in Professor Doti’s classes that inspired her to make this gift,” said Assistant Dean of Development Cary Bowdich. “This donation makes a tremendous statement about how the generosity of one alumni can be turned into a meaningful recognition of the excellent experience she had at Chapman Law.”

The new Professor Frank J. Doti Lecture Hall represents both the involvement of our alumni as well as the long-lasting impact of our faculty members. On behalf of the entire law school community, we thank Dr. Zeinab Dabbah for her continued support of Chapman Law and we are proud that Professor Doti’s hard work will be recognized.
