The University of Chicago Law School was expected to announce on Wednesday a $5 million gift to create a business leadership program.

The gift, from Daniel L. Doctoroff, chief executive of the financial data and media company Bloomberg L.P., and his wife, Alisa Doctoroff, president of the UJA-Federation of New York, will create a program that combines law and business classes at the university.
