Law Alumni Society Hosts Receptions Around the Country

Dean Fitts delivered updates about the Law School at receptions around the country over the last year and a half. Sponsored by the Law Alumni Society, alumni have gathered under the Penn Law banner in Boston, Philadelphia, North Jersey, New York, Wilmington, Washington D.C., Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New Orleans. In June, following on the heels of a very successful reunion last year in Philadelphia – for the first time in the United States – the Penn Law European Society will gather in Berlin, Germany. For information about this upcoming event in Berlin, alumni should contact Franz Tepper GL’87 at tepper@bdphg.de. For information about forthcoming alumni events, contact Sheila Rizzo, Director of Donor and Alumni Relations, (215) 898-6303 or srizzo@law.upenn.edu.

Coffee Talk

This Fall a popular alumni program from the past was revived in the format of the Breakfast with the Dean series. Distinguished alumni who have pursued non-traditional career paths are invited as featured speakers of breakfasts at the Law School over which Dean Fitts presides and to which 1L students are invited to learn about the alum’s career. As the Dean tells students, “This is an opportunity for you to meet some of the incredible alumni I’ve had the chance to meet in my duties as dean. This series will show you the array of options available to you in your career.” So far students have benefited from visits from Michael L. Wheet L’79, Director, Salomon Smith Barney; R. Bruce Rich L’73, Partner, Weil Gotshal & Manges; Rebecca Lieberman L’97, Executive Director, The Democracy Compact; William H. Bohnett L’74, Partner, Fulbright & Jaworski; Allen J. Model L’80 of Overseas Strategic Consulting; James S. Eisenstein WG’83, L’84, Executive Vice President, Corporate Development for American Tower Corporation; and Henry Hoberman C’82, L’85, Senior Vice President, Counsel for ABC, Inc.
