Law School Community Celebrates Two New Endowed

Judge Arsht

The Honorable Roxana C. Arsht L’39 was honored by Penn Law School and the Delaware legal community in April. Judge Arsht, an esteemed lawyer before being named the first woman judge on Delaware Family Court, made a gift of $2 million to the Law School in 2001 to establish the S. Samuel Arsht Professorship in Corporate Law in memory of her late husband S. Samuel Arsht W’31, L’34. Mr. Arsht, who died in 1999, was a founding partner of Morris Nichols Arsht and Tunnel in Wilmington and widely considered the mastermind of the Delaware Corporate Code.

The evening’s celebration included remarks from A. Gilchrist Sparks III L’73, a partner with Morris, Nichols, Arsht & Tunnell, Dean Michael A. Fitts, and the Honorable E. Norman Veasey L’57, Chief Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court. Former Delaware governor, U.S. Senator Tom Carper was also in attendance.

Dean Fitts, Carano

A gala dinner held in the Levy Conference Center in Silverman Hall at the Law School honored Frank Carano C’30, L’33 in June 2002. The previous Fall he endowed the Frank Carano Professorship of Law at Penn to be filled by an academic of the Dean’s choosing. The event was attended by nearly 100 friends and family members of Mr. Carano who paid tribute to his work fostering relations between
the United States and Italy, and in the field of immigration law which he practiced in Philadelphia for six decades. (A profile of Mr. Carano can be viewed in the Spring 2002 issue of the Penn Law Journal, available in print by request, or on the web at http://www.law.upenn.edu/alumnijournal/Spring2002.)
