Business Courier: UC College of Law receives $200,000 gift from alumnus Bill Morelli

The Cincinnati Business Courier spotlights the donation of University of Cincinnati alumnus and attorney Bill Morelli to the Nathaniel R. Jones Center for Race, Gender and Social Justice at the College of Law.

Morelli’s $200,000 donation will create the Bill Morelli Endowment Fund at the center, which focuses on issues of race, gender and social justice.

“At a time when national discussion — often divisive — is taking place on issues of race, gender and justice, it’s important for the legal profession to take the lead in framing issues and developing solutions,” Morelli said in a news release.

"It is important to have centers of learning and develop legal responses to these issues,” he said. “I’m hoping we can bring people together and be a platform for sharing information in both an academic and non-academic way with a broader community audience.”
