Law Prof Donates $6 Million to Law School

Oklahoma Logo The University of Oklahoma College of Law yesterday announced the largest gift in its history -- a $6 million gift from Frank Elkouri, George Lynn Cross Research Professor Emeritus.

Professor Elkouri, a nationally noted authority on labor arbitration, joined the OU law faculty in 1952, teaching labor law, property, trade regulation, torts and workers’ compensation. He was honored with a distinguished George Lynn Cross Research Professorship in 1975. Though he retired in 1985, he continued his leadership at the law school through 2010 as an inspirational mentor and accomplished scholar, said OU College of Law Dean Joseph Harroz. In 2002, the Elkouris made a major gift to endow the Frank Elkouri and Edna Asper Elkouri Professorship of Law, which is held by Professor Randall Coyne.

Does this mean he gets to pick the coach of the Law School Intramural Football team?

I'm sure there's a reason a law prof had $6 million lying around, but perhaps I shouldn't ask.
