Penn Law

Yet again that tremendous international camaraderie which binds Penn's alumni together abroad produced a wonderful weekend for all who came to Antibes on June 18-20, 1999.

We began with a reception on a balcony at the Musje Picasso at the Chateau Grimaldi in Antibes Friday evening. On Saturday, our working sessions (well, it wasn't hardwork) comprised "The Euro: An American Perspective" by Professor Charles Mooney and "Legal and Tax Aspects of the Principality of Monaco" by Donald Manasse, an American attorney practicing in Nice. Saturday evening saw the Gala dinner - "Dress code: white" said the invitation. It is our tradition that the dress code be that of the venue (which so far has ranged from Oslo to Milan to Brussels to London and Dublin). There we all are in our interpretation of "white" pictured outside the Villa Elein Roc, Cap d'Antibes, the palatial setting for the dinner.

For its athletic younger folk who still had a clear head the next morning, there was a mini-tennis tournament and we all assembled at a beachside restaurant for lunch before dispersing. We are deeply grateful to our local hosts, Christophe Rhodius LL.M. '90 and Marie, who had done such a wonderful job. It was good to have Joan Diver and Colin (in a new white suit), Chuck Mooney and Jane Bloomfield, and the past and new presidents of the Law Alumni Society, Arlene Fickler and Richard Rosin, respectively, with us. Why weren'tyou there? PLES loves to see friends from Penn who can be assured of a warm welcome and a great weekend. (just ask Arlene or Richie Rosen if in doubt.)

Next year, the venue will be Amsterdam, the dates June 3-4, 2000. Details will be available from Jane Bloomfield in the Development and Alumni Relations Office at the Law School.
