Curtis Reitz
Curtis Reitz, C’51, L’56, retired last year after a half century of teaching. Hundreds upon hundreds of students passed through his classes in Contracts, Commercial Law and Professional Responsibility, among others, and emerged wiser for the experience. Much of what they learned came from the realization that every answer begets more questions.


Curtis Reitz, taught first year Penn Law students from 1960 to 2002. For my class, the entering class in 1965, and I suspect for many of the other classes during these years, Curtis was a major, and memorable part of our Law School experience.
