WHO’S WHO OF LAW SCHOOL ALUMNI RECEIVE AWARDS
Six Penn Law progeny came home during Reunion Weekend in May to receive honors for their achievements. One legendary professor was also honored posthumously as a paragon of pedagogy and scholarship.
Schwartz spent nearly forty years on the Penn Law faculty shaping the curriculum and molding the careers of a generation of students. Dean Michael A. Fitts praised Schwartz as a “ferocious intellect” and visionary who anticipated the importance of cross-disciplinary training for attorneys.
Scottoline joined a who’s who of alumni to receive an award. The Alumni Award of Merit was also presented to David L. Cohen L’81, former Chief of Staff to Philadelphia Mayor Ed Rendell and current Executive Vice President of AT&T Comcast Corp. and Senior Counsel to CEO Brian L. Roberts; Robert M. Potamkin L’ 70, a business entrepreneur with a far-flung empire of business interests that includes auto dealerships, real estate, radio stations, television stations and Office Depot stores in Poland and Hungary; and Richard E. Rosin L’68, a private practice attorney who has played an important role in bringing victims’ rights to public attention.
