Alan Lowenstein attached no strings to his $2 million donation to New Jersey’s Rutgers-Newark Law School last month — the largest in the school’s history — but he did express a lofty goal: that his gift will inspire other donors, so that Rutgers-Newark will one day be vaulted to the ranks of the nation’s top law schools.

As far-fetched as that goal may have sounded a few years ago, recent events make it more plausible. Lowenstein’s gift comes on the heels of a $1 million private donation from the family of the late Nathan Baker, who practiced law in Hoboken for 56 years, to construct a high-tech courtroom in the new Washington Street law building.
