          With deep appreciation and great excitement, we are pleased to announce that renowned trial lawyer and UC Hastings Professor of Practice @shanin.specter is giving $1 million to the UC Hastings Foundation! “I love the UC Hastings students,” Specter said in a recent Q&A for his popular “How to Ask a Question” course. “They are very bright and have lots of common sense. They’re also practical, committed, scrappy, and tough.” The gift will be used to build the new “Shanin Specter Courtroom” and to support multiple areas within the College. And while Specter says he would prefer to be known for his practice and his pedagogy rather than his philanthropy, he also says he hopes his gift may spur others to give, “because much remains to be done."
