The George E. Allen Chair in Law was established with the initial gifts of his sons, the late George E. Allen, Jr. R' 36, Ashby B. Allen R' 43,
and Wilbur C. Allen. Their continuing support along with the contributions of others accounted for the Chair becoming fully endowed in 1988. The Allen Chair allows the Law School to invite
distinguished legal scholars to spend time in residence and interact with the students and faculty of The T. C. Williams School of Law at the University of Richmond. This year, the Allen Chair scholars are teamed
with Professor W Clark Williams in teaching "Special Problems in Civil Procedure - Complex Litigation.''
