When Doug Frenkel, W’68, L’72, assumed the helm of
the Gittis Center for Clinical Legal Studies nearly three decades
ago, it was a rather barebones operation. Student enrollment
was small and there was just a single clinical course.
On June 30, Frenkel will step down after 28 years as director
and be replaced by Louis Rulli, a member of the clinical faculty
since 1995 (see related story). In the interim, Frenkel can look
back with satisfaction at his efforts to transform Penn Law’s
clinical education program into a national model.
