The Wall Street Journal reports on a very nice holiday gift to Benjam N. Cardozo School of Law. Kathy Greenberg, a public-interest lawyer, is giving $500,000 to the Law School to support the law school's immigration law clinic, which represents needy immigrants facing deportation. Mrs. Greenberg's husband, Alan, is vice chairman emeritus of J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. The recent gift by the Greenbergs will also go to fund scholarships for students in financial need, as well as for stipends for 10-week summer internships and postgraduate fellowships for positions in public-interest law. Last summer, 240 students received grants of $4,000 to $5,000 to work in public-service internships in government agencies and legal aid nonprofits.
