Indianapolis businessman Michael "Mickey" Maurer has made a $35 million donation to the Indiana University, whose Bloomington law school will be renamed the Michael Maurer School of Law.
Maurer, 65, earned an IU law degree in 1967 and had a 20-year career as a practicing attorney. He is publisher of the Indianapolis Business Journal and chairman of the National Bank of Indianapolis. He served as Governor Mitch Daniels' first secretary of commerce.
The gift, the largest in the law school's history to come from a single donor, will fund an undetermined number of scholarships.
