LEXINGTON, Ky. — The University of Kentucky Board of Trustees has voted to accept the gift commitment of $20 million from J. David Rosenberg and to officially rename the College of Law as the University of Kentucky J. David Rosenberg College of Law.

The endowment’s focus will be to enhance the intellectual excellence and promise for which the J. David Rosenberg College of Law has been known and to continue to grow its national and international reputation.
