Gregg, Hart Give Major Gift to Florida State Law

Nov 01, 2007

FORT LAUDERDALE— With a commitment of $100,000, Florida State law school graduates Carol L. Gregg (’74) and Ken Hart (’75) have created the Carol Gregg and Ken Hart Endowment for Excellence for the Public Interest Law Center.

The Tallahassee couple’s gift to the Florida State University College of Law will be eligible for a 50 percent match from the state of Florida. The $50,000 state match will be added to the permanent endowment, creating a total endowment of $150,000. The income generated by the endowment will be used to provide financial support where it is needed most within the law school’s Public Interest Law Center, with a preference for supporting litigation expenses.

“We are all very grateful for Carol and Ken’s generous financial support of the Public Interest Law Center, to which Carol also contributes her time on a pro bono basis,” said Dean Don Weidner. “This endowment will help support the Center in its mission to provide effective legal services to children and other under-represented clients.”

“Though the Public Interest Law Center has outstanding faculty, excellent student participants and receives tremendous support from the legal community, funding for the 1 2 center needs to be on a solid foundation, rather than depending on the whim of grants,” Gregg said.

Gregg is assistant general counsel with the Florida Department of Health. Hart is a shareholder at the law firm of Ausley & McMullen, P.A., and his practice focuses on administrative law, alternative dispute resolution, government and litigation.
