From the newsroom of the Loyola University (Chicago):
$5 Million Gift to Law School
Bernard J. Beazley, a 1950 graduate of Loyola's School of Law, has given a $5 million gift that will help fund a significant expansion of the university's Institute for Health Law, which will be renamed the Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy.
A leader in the field since 1984, Loyola's Institute for Health Law offers one of the most comprehensive and respected programs of its kind and is consistently ranked by U.S. News and World Report as one of the best in the nation. "Our health law program is already a national leader in the critical intersection of law and health care. This remarkable gift by Bernie Beazley will enable us to move to another level," said David Yellen, dean, School of Law.
"As a long-time supporter of Loyola and a health care advocate, I am extremely pleased to be supporting the law school's Institute for Health Law," said Mr. Beazley. "Loyola's Institute for Health Law program is one of the best in the country, and I would like to continue to build and grow this prestigious program."
Mr. Beazley has served on Loyola's President's Advisory Council and is a member of the Shield of Loyola University Chicago, the planned giving society.
