LAW REVIEW SYMPOSIUM EXAMINES PREFERENCES

The University of Pennsylvania Law Review, now in its 150th year of publication, presented “Preferences and Rational Choice: New Perspectives and Legal Implications” as the 2002 Journal Symposium. Editorin- Chief Michael Mugmon, along with Penn faculty Claire Finkelstein, Professor of Law and Philosophy, and Peter Huang, Assistant Professor of Law, coordinated the event that took place over two days in early March 2002. In a novel twist, faculty of the Law School were the moderators on each panel discussion presented, including “The Preference-Maximization Model of Rationality;” “Intertemporal Choice;” “Emotions;” “Risk;” “Morality;” “Practices and Rationality;” and “Legal Implications.” Issues of the University of Pennsylvania Law Review can be viewed on the web at www.law.upenn.edu/journals/lrev.

The Institute for Law & Economics honored James H. Agger L’61 for his service as chairman of the board of advisors for one of the Law School’s premier institutes. Agger, former Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary for Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and a former member of the Law School’s Board of Overseers, stewarded the Institute’s growth from 1994 to 2001. At a celebratory dinner with the Board of Advisors, Dean Fitts commented, “Jim has been a champion for ILE’s programmatic expansion. His extraordinary generosity has done much to enable this growth, allowing ILE to set new benchmarks for giving and inspiring others to increased levels of support.” Robert L. Friedman L ’67, Senior Managing Director of the Blackstone Group L.P. in New York, succeeds him.
