AS THE THEN-CURRENT and future presidents of the University
of Pennsylvania looked on, the Law School paid tribute
to Henry R. Silverman, who had designated $5 million of his
original $15 million gift to establish the Silverman-Rodin
Scholars program. Part of that gift also endowed a professorship.
At a dinner in New York attended by Judith Rodin and
new Penn president Amy Gutmann, Penn Law Dean Michael
A. Fitts presented Silverman with a key to the Law School
and a script from the television program Law & Order signed
by cast members. Law & Order is Silverman’s favorite show.
In recognition of his gift, Silverman will also appear on an
episode of the popular show this season.
