After decades of experience providing counsel to Nova Southeastern University (NSU), Partners Thomas F. Panza, J.D., and Susan Horovitz Maurer, J.D., have made an even more lasting mark on the University through a $1 million donation, creating an endowed scholarship fund for the Shepard Broad College of Law students. In honor of their support, NSU’s College of Law named its library the Panza Maurer Law Library at a recent dedication ceremony and ribbon cutting event.
Mr. Panza founded Panza, Maurer & Maynard, P.A., in Fort Lauderdale in 1976. He has served as NSU’s outside general counsel since that time and as special assistant to five of the University’s six presidents, including current NSU President, Dr. George Hanbury. “Tom has been at our side, providing guidance as NSU has grown from a tiny storefront with just 17 students to our current status as one of the largest not-for-profit universities in the country,” said President Hanbury. “Susan has been general counsel since 1980 – a newcomer in comparison – but she too has been instrumental in our development.”
“This generous gift will enable young men and women to attend the Shepard Broad College of Law and, thereby, help create the next generation of well-trained lawyers who can follow in Tom and Susan’s footsteps,” said Jon Garon, J.D., Dean of the College of Law.
