| 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5
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.
