Partners at O’Melveny & Myers have pledged $1.5 million to permanently endow a professorship in international law and diplomacy at Stanford Law School honoring former Secretary of State Warren Christopher. Christopher, a senior partner at the firm, is credited with negotiating the release of 52 American hostages from Iran in 1980 in the waning days of his tenure as Deputy Secretary of State. He served as Secretary of State for President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 1997 and negotiated an end to the bloody war in Bosnia Herzegovina. The Christopher chair was established in 2000 as a limited professorship for visiting faculty through donations from Stanford Law School alumnus Richard Morningstar, former U.S. Ambassador to the European Union, Edison International and the Carnegie Corp. of New York, where Christopher was a former chairman. The endowment from O’Melveny and a number of partners allows the chair to be a permanent professorship at the law school. “Endowing the Christopher Chair pays tribute to a great statesman, while providing a valuable, lasting resource to support the study and teaching of international issues that are shaping the future of the world,” said Larry Kramer, dean of Stanford Law School. A.B. Culvahouse, chairman of O’Melveny, said the mission of the Christopher chair reflects the firm’s core values of promoting scholarship and support of public service and international law. “We are delighted to support the Christopher Chair and thereby to recognize Warren Christopher’s many accomplishments, and his continuing example and service,” Culvahouse said.
