Announcements Villanova University School of Law has received a pledge of $500,000 from the Connelly Foundationin support of the law school’s fundraising campaign for its new building, announced Mark A. Sargent, dean. The Connelly Foundation seeks to foster learning and improve the quality of life in the Philadelphia region, and has long been a generous supporter of Villanova University. The Campaign for Villanova Law, which began its public phase in April 2006 and is scheduled to end in 2008, has raised more than $19 million in gifts and pledges toward its goal of $20 million. The first phase of the building project, a 600-space parking garage, was completed in July. Groundbreaking for the new law school building was held in November.

The new building will be about 70,000-square-feet larger than the current building. New Partners Lisa A. Lori , Anthony P. Tabassoand Matthew H.
