Announcing Eleven Philanthropic Gifts 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6

ARLIN M. ADAMS L’47
has made a substantial gift to the Law School’s general fund to be used to support law students to serve as summer interns for members of the federal judiciary. Judge Adams is counsel at Philadelphia-based Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis. He has had a long and distinguished career on the bench and in public service, having spent 18 years as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and three years as secretary of public welfare for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He also served five years as an independent counsel investigating the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Judge Adams was editor-in-chief of the Penn Law Review and is a former chairman of Penn Law’s Board of Overseers. He has also served as Chancellor of the Philadelphia Bar Association and President of the American Judicature Society. He received the Distinguished Service Award in 1981 as well as the James Wilson Award from the Law Alumni Society in 2001. He also lectured at the Law School for twenty-two years. He is past president of the American Philosophical Society and the author of numerous law review articles and a case book on constitutional law. In 1997, Judge Adams received the Philadelphia Award for service to the community and in 1999 the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Gold Medal Award.

An endowed scholarship fund has been created in memory of the late Penn Law professor, MARTIN ARONSTEIN L’65, who died last year. Aronstein was a member of the faculty for 14 years. He also practiced at Obermeyer, Rebman, Maxwell, and Hippel, Morgan, Lewis, and Bockius, and was a partner at Ballard, Spahr, Andrews & Ingersoll. He was counsel to the Permanent Editorial Board of the Uniform Commercial Code and principal author of revisions to the UCC’s Article X governing uncertificated securities.
