A couple who met while students at Marquette University are donating $51 million to build it a new law school.

Shipping entrepreneur Ray Eckstein graduated from the law school in 1949, and he met his wife, Kathryn, while a student there, according to msn.com.

A press release announcing the donation says that over the last 25 years, Marquette Law School's faculty has doubled in size and its student body has increased 50 percent.
