Michael P. Williams L’96, Deputy Director, Community Legal Services in Philadelphia received the Young Alumni Award and Howard Gittis L’58, Vice Chairman and Chief Administrative Officer at MacAndrews & Forbes, received the Distinguished Service Award. Gittis is an active supporter of higher education at Temple, where he is Chairman of the Board, as well as at Penn.

“Penn Law has meant everything to me in my life,” said Gittis, explaining his fealty to the school. ”Everything that has been good in my career stems from the Law School.”

Cohen voiced similar sentiments. “The group I’m privileged to be honored with says all you need to know about the Law School.”

To Potamkin, the ceremony felt like a homecoming. Potamkin studied at the Wharton School and the Law School. “I often say, ‘I learned more about business at the Law School than I did at Wharton’,” Potamkin said.

Rosin, chair of the Equal Justice Foundation at Penn Law, expressed gratitude for receiving an award for his commitment to public service. “We all have an obligation to give back that which we have garnished,” Rosin said.

After Law School Dean Fitts thanked David Richman L’69 for his service as president of the Law Alumni Society, Stella Ming Tsai L’88 was elected to succeed him. Serving with her will be Tai Chang Terry L’80, first vice president; James Golden L’80, second vice president; Laura Ross Blumenfeld L’73, secretary; and Young Park L’90, treasurer.
