Gift Profile:
Prof. Befort (’76) and His Wife, Anne Johnson (’88), Invest in Law School's Future

Professor Stephen Befort (’76) and his wife, Anne Johnson (’88), have made a gift of an insurance policy to the Law School that will provide substantial help to future generations of students. This is important to Befort, a first-generation college student from a family with few resources. "The Law School has been my professional home for 36 years [3 as a student, 33 as a professor] and has been good to me," he says. Likewise, Johnson learned from her parents "the values and rewards of philanthropy."
