Yale Gift Will Go Toward Law School Student Living Space

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) – Yale Law School has announced a $25 million gift from a graduate and his wife that will be used to bring dormitory living back for students.

Yale said Thursday the gift commitment by Christina and Robert C. Baker will be used to secure and renovate a building for student living space.

Plans call for the law school to acquire the building from the university in 2018, with renovations beginning later that year.

Yale University President Peter Salovey says residential life was central to the law school until a few years ago and the gift will allow future generations to benefit from living on campus.

Robert Baker, a graduate of Yale College and Yale Law School, is the founder, chairman, and CEO of National Realty & Development Corp.
