Robert Mundheim
Former Penn Law Dean Robert H. Mundheim, who in the 1980s began the effort to create a significant endowment for the Law School, has now made a major gift of his own. He and his family have contributed $1 million to establish The Mundheim Family Fund for Financial Aid.

This gift will provide scholarships or interest-free loans to students in need. “There is no finer legal education than that offered by the Law School,” said Robert Mundheim, of counsel to Shearman & Sterling in New York. “Our gift will help assure that students admitted to Penn Law need not turn down admission for financial reasons.”

Current Law School Dean Michael A. Fitts added: “Bob Mundheim had a remarkable impact on the Law School during his deanship; many of the initiatives we are pursuing today can be traced back to his tenure. What a wonderful way to commemorate his indispensable service to the school.”
