The Board of Visitors of Columbia Law School invites you to honor Dean David M. Schizer for ten years of extraordinary leadership with a special gift to the Center for Israeli Legal Studies.
David M. Schizer
As Dean of Columbia Law School since 2004, David M. Schizer has shown extraordinary vision and leadership through challenging times. He has achieved record levels of alumni engagement and commitment and has significantly advanced the Law School’s reputation for unparalleled academic excellence.
As he prepares to step down, he leaves the Law School securely positioned to continue to expand its global influence on the profession, society, and the rule of law.
In appreciation for all he has done, and to create a lasting legacy in his honor, we are seeking to add the name of David M. Schizer to the Center for Israeli Legal Studies, a teaching and research center that he particularly wishes to see permanently endowed.
Center for Israeli Legal Studies
Established in 2008, the Center for Israeli Legal Studies brings together Israeli and U.S. legal scholars and practitioners to explore cutting-edge legal issues of pressing concern to the State of Israel today.
In addition to hosting visiting Israeli faculty and scholars throughout the year, the Center sponsors lectures, seminars, and conferences; creates fellowship opportunities for students; and develops exchange opportunities for students to pursue research or internships in Israel.
The Center for Israeli Legal Studies is currently guided by Professor Zohar Goshen, a leading scholar in business law and an influential member of the Israeli legal academy, its business community, and the elite Israeli bar.
The [David M. Schizer] Center for Israeli Legal Studies
To create a lasting legacy in Dean's Schizer's honor, the Columbia Law School Board of Visitors seeks to raise $5 million to endow the Center for Israeli Legal Studies. Several donors have led the way with very generous contributions totaling $4.4 million. Our goal, therefore, is to raise an additional $600,000 to name The David M. Schizer Center for Israeli Legal Studies.
Thank you for joining us in celebration of Dean David Schizer and his ten years of extraordinary leadership. To help us reach our goal, please consider a gift of $2,500 or more.
