In April, the Law School welcomed Lisa and Chris Jeffries, ’74, to officially celebrate the dedication and naming of Jeffries Hall. The building opened as South Hall in 2012 and was renamed following the Jeffries’s $33 million dollar gift—the largest gift in Law School history. The entirety of the gift is dedicated to student support, including scholarships and other forms of financial aid, such as summer funding programs and debt management.

“We are celebrating the dedication of Jeffries Hall, and especially the generosity of Chris and Lisa Jeffries,” said Mark West, the David A. Breach Dean of Law and Nippon Life Professor of Law at the ceremony. “Thank you for all you’ve done for Michigan Law, and thank you for being with us today.”
