CHARLESTON, W.Va. - A Charleston attorney is giving $1 million to his alma mater.

The Charleston Gazette reports Jim Humphreys' donation will provide scholarships to students at the George Washington University Law School in Washington, D.C.

Humphreys graduated from the law school in 1978 after receiving his undergraduate degree from West Virginia University. He is a member of the George Washington Board of Trustees and the law school's Board of Advisers.

In 2003, he paid for a new student lounge and amphitheater classroom on the campus.

Two years later he made a $3 million gift to the law school that was used to create a litigation center and endowed chair. The center provides lawyers, judges, court administrators and public-policy makers with information about complex litigation.
