Thomas Lambert, '98, Named to New Chair in Corporate Governance at U of Missouri School of Law

From the Missourian:

COLUMBIA — Charles Wall gave a gift of $1.57 million to the MU School of Law on Thursday     morning, though he did not present it himself.

"He's a very humble individual," said Tom Hiles, vice chancellor for development and alumni relations. "He provided the support, but actually, we had to kind of talk him into allowing us to use his name at all on the chair. So we're really privileged to have, and honored to have, his name on the chair."

Law professor Thomas Lambert will be the inaugural Wall Chair in Corporate Law and Governance. The Nancy and Charles Wall Family Foundation, which Charles Wall heads with his sister, provided the funds to establish the chair and to start the professorship immediately.

Charles Wall graduated from the MU School of Law in 1970 and has had a successful career in corporate law, MU Chancellor Brady Deaton said.
