UCLA Law Will Receive $1.5 Million
The Shapiro Family Foundation has made a commitment to the UCLA School of Law of $1.5 million. The money will go toward the Pete Kameron Endowed Chair in Law, which honors music industry legend and philanthropist Pete Kameron. Kameron, who has come to be known as a legend at the law school, is close friends with Ralph Shapiro, and together they have established the Pete Kameron Fund and the Pete Kameron Scholarship Fund at the school so far. The funds provide encouragement and support for students who are dedicated to music, entertainment, and media law.
Touro Law School to Be Purchased?
It's reported that Stony Brook University is allegedly interested in buying Touro Law School. Touro, located in Central Islip in New York, is a smaller law school but one that has been making a name for itself. The state senate's chairman of higher education is reportedly happy about the idea of the merger. Although there is no official word yet, talks are being held regarding the future of the law school, which was formerly known as the Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center. If the purchase happens, Touro will become the second law school in New York's state university system, the first one being the University at Buffalo Law School. No final decision will be made until all negotiations are worked out. The final vote will come from the school's president, Bernard Lander, and the college's board of trustees, according to officials.

Education is one of the most basic right of any human, but with the increase in prices and the costs involved in education this has made these rights turn into a privilege which very few can enjoy. Any normal person today in the whole of United States has to take an education loan at one point of time to pay for their education fees.
As a result of the new, higher interest rates, someone with $20,000 in student loans can expect to pay around $5,000 more in added interest over the life of the loan. Borrower benefits can help you reduce your interest rate before you pay these added charges.
