Dan Gilbert, Stephen Ross each donate $5 million to Wayne State Law

Both Dan Gilbert and Stephen Ross will donate $5 million to Wayne State University’s Law School in honor of outgoing dean Jocelyn Benson, the school will announce today.

The pair – each alumni of the school – will give the gifts to establish the Benson Legacy Fund for Wayne Law and the Benson Endowed Enhancement Fund for Wayne Law. The money will be spent at the discretion of the school’s dean to further the school. Benson is leaving the school at the end of the month to work for a new organization headed by Ross.

Each gift is the largest single gift ever received by the law school.

“I am thrilled to have two of Wayne Law’s most successful and influential alumni unite to make this historic investment in the future of our law school,” Benson said in a written statement. “It is an honor to count them both as members of the Wayne Law family; their accomplishments and leadership are an inspiration for our entire community.”
