Bridging Law & Business 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6

We aspire to build a world-class program in law and business, one that will make Penn an international center for the study and teaching of the role of law and legal professionals in the design and management of institutions.

Strategic Plan of the
University of Pennsylvania Law School, 1997

Across the wide range of private and public organizations in existence today, the need for creative and effective management – and the challenges in its path – are profound. The global market place has become a reality, with large and small, domestic and multinational firms competing for markets and opportunity.

The University of Pennsylvania Law School has made great strides to achieve the goals set in 1997. The school has added to its stellar faculty new scholars who are at the forefront of relationship building between the disciplines and professions.

With the addition of two chaired professorships in the area of corporate and business law in 2001, Penn Law School’s progress in expanding the faculty and curriculum in this area of the Strategic Plan has been outstanding.

Saul A. Fox L'78 and
A. Gilchrist Sparks III L'73

The Winding Way Foundation of the Jewish Community Foundation’s Endowment Fund made the largest single gift establishing a chair in the history of the University of Pennsylvania. The $4 million gift was made in honor of Saul A. Fox, a 1978 graduate of the Law School and a member of its Board of Overseers. The gift created the Saul A. Fox Distinguished Professorship of Business Law and the associated Fox Endowed Research Fund. As the inaugural Saul A. Fox Distinguished Professor, Edward B. Rock L’83 will hold a primary appointment to the faculty of the Law School and a secondary appointment to the faculty of Penn’s Wharton School.

In addition, with a gift to the University of Pennsylvania Law School of
$2 million, the Honorable Roxana Cannon Arsht L’39 endowed The S. Samuel Arsht Professorship in Corporate Law at the Law School. The professorship was established in memory of her husband, S. Samuel Arsht, who died in 1999, a 1931 graduate of the Wharton School, a 1934 graduate of the Law School, and a named partner of Morris, Nichols, Arsht & Tunnell in Wilmington, Delaware. Judge Arsht is retired from the Family Court bench of the State of Delaware and holds the distinction of being Delaware’s first female judge.
