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

A $1.2 million gift has been made from the estate of BERNARD G. SEGAL L’31. The bulk of the gift is being used to make improvements to the physical plant. Segal, an original member of Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis, eventually became the firm’s chairman. He was the youngest deputy attorney general in Pennsylvania history, and served as president of the American Bar Association. He had also been a trustee of the University of Pennsylvania, where he endowed the Bernard G. Segal Professorship of Law at the Law School, held by Dean Michael A. Fitts.

ALVIN SNOWISS C’52, L’55 AND HIS WIFE, JEAN, continued their dedication to Penn Law with a gift to fund the Alvin L. Snowiss Professor in Law, which they established in 1999. The chair supports scholarship in the fields of antitrust law, economic regulation, law and economics, environmental or corporate law. Snowiss is founder of and senior partner at the Lock Haven, Pennsylvania firm of Snowiss, Steinberg, Faulkner & Hall, LLP. In addition, Snowiss was the first recipient of the Pennsylvania Bar Association Cultural Heritage Award, which is given to a Pennsylvania lawyer who has made significant personal contributions to the arts and humanities outside his practice of law. Jean and Alvin were both born and raised in Lock Haven, and have established scholarships at Penn State University. The scholarships are awarded to graduates of Clinton County schools.
