Confidential Sources on Trial
Star journalist Norman Pearlstine L'67 is used to asking questions and questioning motives. But the former Wall Street Journal editor and Time, Inc. editor in chief had to endure a withering assault on his character after he chose to give up a Time magazine reporter's notes in the Valerie Plame case. He turned to a trusty source to defend his decision: his Penn Law education.

Shelter From the Storm
BY ANDY GREENBERG
When Katrina washed out the fall 2005 semester at Tulane Law School, we provided a life raft to a group of students. They didn't miss a beat and are now back in tow in New Orleans.
Harrison Report: Post-World War II Bombshell
BY LARRY TEITELBAUM
In July 1945, as the world learned the shocking fate of millions of European Jews, Earl Harrison C20 L'23, then-dean of Penn Law School, moved to protect survivors of the Holocaust. His report on intolerable conditions in displaced persons camps spurred outrage, action, and ultimately, changes in immigration laws.
A Case of Political Descent
BY ANDY GREENBERG
Recent grad Wayne Chang had an interesting childhood. He learned that he descended from Chiang Kai-shek and Chiang Ching-kuo, Taiwan's first president. To his credit, Wayne has no intention of trading on his background. He's doing well enough on his own, thank you very much.
Clinic Hits 30
BY LARRY TEITELBAUM
In the post-Watergate era of reform, Penn Law School diverged from the standard curriculum to try something new. It took a flier on a small program to train students how to practice law. Today, that experiment has succeeded beyond expectation, with seven separate clinics and more than 160 students per year. It has become a laboratory for innovation.
