Professor David Shores has been educating law students for 36 years. He teaches Taxation of Corporations and Shareholders, and Mergers and Acquisitions, both of which are challenging but popular courses. “My students work hard and provide me with a great source of satisfaction.”
Over Shores’ 36 years, he has seen firsthand how philanthropy has impacted the law school and the student experience. “The scholarships we have been able to award, thanks to alumni giving, have enhanced the overall quality of students that choose Wake Forest. They are strong from the top to the bottom.”
Students are not the only ones who benefit from the generosity of alumni — faculty do as well. “Research stipends were nonexistent when I first started teaching but today, all faculty members are offered stipends to develop their research and scholarship.” The faculty and staff at Wake Forest are committed to providing the best educational experience and it takes considerable resources to support this vision.
