Attorney Donates Personal Law Library to Texas Southern, Valued at $3 Million
[mpoverlay]Texas Southern University yesterday announced the donation of a expansive law library from attorney Joe Jamail to the school’s Thurgood Marshall School of Law. The library, comprised of more than 1000 volumes, is valued at more than $3 million.
Nicknamed the “King of Torts,” Jamail became famous for winning a $500,000 award for an electrician who lost his hands due to a faulty electrical box in the 1970s.
“Our Thurgood Marshall School of Law has long been recognized as the country’s most diverse law school, and as such, this gift will go far in helping to expand the diversity of the legal profession in Texas and the nation,” TSU President Dr. John Rudley said in a prepared statement.
