Chapman University’s law school is the recipient of the second largest reported gift to any law school in the United States thanks to a $55 million donation from prominent real estate developer Dale E. Fowler and his wife Sarah Ann.

The law school will be named “The Dale E. Fowler School of Law.” A special ribbon-cutting event will take place September 10 to commemorate the naming, featuring keynote speaker former Secretary of State George Schultz.

“This is one of the greatest gifts to any law school in the history of the United States; our best research has determined that this is the second largest reported single gift to an American law school,” said Tom Campbell, dean of the law school. “With the infusion of this remarkable gift, the Dale E. Fowler School of Law can reinforce its commitment to practical legal training, to hiring new professors from the top ranks of academics and practitioners across the country, and to helping make the cost of law school more affordable for its students,” continued Dean Campbell.
