Tulane University Law School received a $1.5 million gift from trial attorney David Boies, establishing the David Boies Distinguished Chair in Law that will be awarded to an eminent scholar and teacher to support research and other academic endeavors. A search to fill the Boies chair will begin immediately. Boies’ two children graduated from Tulane University Law School, which is a large reason for his gift, Boies said. “I am pleased to support an institution that has been so important to my family,” he said. “I am particularly pleased to participate in this important time in the history of Tulane and New Orleans.” David Boies is chairman of the law firm of Boies, Schiller and Flexner, a national law firm with offices in New York, Washington, California, Florida, New Hampshire and New Jersey. Boies was previously a partner in the New York office of Cravath, Swaine & Moore. Boies’ other work includes serving as counsel to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, special trial counsel for the United States Department of Justice in its antitrust suit against Microsoft and lead counsel for former Vice-President Al Gore in connection with litigation relating to the 2000 election Florida vote count. “Given David Boies’ outstanding accomplishments in the field of law and his reputation for integrity and the highest professional standards, we are honored to establish a chair in his name at Tulane,” said Lawrence Ponoroff, Dean of Tulane University Law School.
