The new dean of the University of Chicago Law School, Michael H. Schill, plans to launch a fundraising campaign to raise between $150 million and $200 million, and he hopes to expand the faculty.

In an interview, Schill also said:

  • Neither of his parents went to college.
  • He is a great believer in scholarships made possible by alumni donations.
  • The “disconnection... between what lawyers do and what is done in law schools has grown over time.”
  • He is a “TiVo fanatic” and is in mourning over the cancellation of his favorite TV show, “24.”
