Ken Ziffren Gives $5 Million to UCLA for Media Law Center

The UCLA School of Law will create the Ziffren Center for Media, Entertainment, Technology and Sports Law after attorney Ken Ziffren gave a $5 million gift to his alma mater.

Ziffren also serves as an adjunct professor at the school and is the “film czar” for the city of Los Angeles.

The law school said that the gift will allow it to expand its program via research support, new programming and training. The dean of the law school, Jennifer L. Mnookin, said in a statement that “with this extraordinary and inspirational gift, he both cements and ensures UCLA Law’s preeminence in media and entertainment law.”

“It’s very gratifying to be able to extend support to the next generation of leaders, and to help guarantee that the law school’s Center will continue to be best in the nation,” Ziffren said.

Ziffren, co-founding partner of Ziffren Brittenham, teaches a motion picture distribution seminar, and serves on the law school’s board of advisers.
