King’s College London law school receives £20 million donation!
King’s College London has received a record donation, from a single contributor, of £20 million for its School of Law. This donation was made by a Hong Kong-based philanthropist called Dickson Poon, and the School of Law has now been renamed the Dickson Poon School of Law.
Mr Poon says, “My donation reflects a shared enthusiasm with the distinguished law faculty at King's College London to set new standards in legal education and research. The faculty will be expanded, student scholarships increased, leadership forums created and a new degree introduced. These groundbreaking innovations underscore our unique focus on transnational law, which will groom future leaders needed to guide an increasingly connected world.”
Former Prime Minister and Chairman of the King’s College fundraising campaign, Sir John Major, says, “The new Dickson Poon School of Law will attract the best and brightest legal scholars and students from around the world, and the academic faculty will pioneer a new standard for others to follow.”
The Principal of King’s College London, Sir Richard Trainor, says, “The creation of the Dickson Poon School of Law is a milestone achievement in the 180-year history of King's College London and will open a new era of academic opportunity.”
