The St. Thomas University law school in Miami has raised about $600,000 from lawyers willing to make donations in exchange for naming rights to everything from walkways to classrooms.
The largest donation so far is from alumnus Alex Hanna, who gave $250,000 to name the law library and $25,000 to name the school’s main entrance, the National Law Journal reports. Others have donated amounts ranging from $10,000 to $100,000 for rights to name walkways, an atrium, a conference room, a breezeway and a student affairs center, the story says.
So far no one has come up with the $10 million needed to name the law school itself. And the bathroom is not for sale, the story says.
