Penn Law Welcomes Reunion of International Alumni

For their first reunion ever in the United States, the Penn Law European Society (PLES) joined with international alumni of Penn Law in Philadelphia to commemorate the school’s 150th anniversary. Over three days, graduates of the LL.M. program and their guests were tourists in Philadelphia as they participated in a reenactment of the events of July 1776 through the Lights of Liberty show at Independence Hall and enjoyed a trolley tour of Philadelphia’s historic neighborhoods.

The social events kicked-off with a reception at the Law School at which Dean Michael A. Fitts, Colin S. Diver Charles A. Heimbold Jr. Professor of Law, and former Law Alumni Society president Arlene Fickler CW’71, L’74 welcomed alumni back to Penn Law. The following day, Professor William Ewald was the Keynote Speaker on the subject of the LL.M. program curriculum at a luncheon at the Law School. The international audience then attended a panel discussion on the subject of the 2000 presidential election debacle: “Popular Democracy: American Style.” Professors Seth Kreimer and Kim Lane Scheppele, constitutional law scholars, joined with Murray Greenberg C’65, L’68, Chief Counsel of Dade County, Florida and Sir Nicolas Bratza, Judge on the European Court of Human Rights and former Penn Law faculty member, to discuss the legal posturing during the 36 days.
