Officials gathered to dedicate Marquette University’s new law school building. Eckstein Hall was made possible by a $51 million gift in May 2007 from an alumni couple from Cassville, Wis. At the time, this was the largest gift made by individuals to a college or university in Wisconsin, and it remains the second-largest gift to a law school within the United States.

Milwaukee builder and philanthropist Joseph Zilber, also a Marquette law school alumnus, donated $30 million to Marquette law school.
