Career Evolution
BY MICHAEL CALLAHAN, MAURA DIFILIPPO, EDWARD N. EISEN, BELINDA HULIN, DAVID A. LOVE, L'03, LARRY TEITELBAUM AND BILL WINE
Legal training provides a fount of career possibilities, whether you're starting out, changing jobs or looking back on a life well-spent. You can run a restaurant empire or a medical diagnostic company; helm a movie studio or perform public service at an international tribunal; enter the diplomatic corps or save the environment, in the twilight of your career. All of these options and more are available with a Penn Law degree.

The Dark Side of James Wilson
BY NATALIE WEXLER. L'83
There's the public story and the, um, backstory. James Wilson, the founder of Penn Law School, is revered as a scholastic figure, judicial eminence and colonial-era icon. Who knew that he was also a scofflaw and a man engaged in a scandalous marriage with a teenage girl whose life came to a sad and unseemly end.

A Shepherd to Troubled Youths
BY JOHN ROSENGREN
Paul Minorini, L'91, is one of the good guys. As president and chief executive officer of Boys Hope Girls Hope, Minorini takes young people from broken homes and turns them into whole people - well-educated and career-oriented. For that, he's won accolades and something more important: the gratitude of those he helps.

Doug Frenkel Steps Down as Clinic Director
BY LARRY TEITELBAUM
For nearly three decades, Doug Frenkel,W'68, L'72, turned the legal clinic into his personal laboratory - and one of the best clinical programs in the country. He was a pioneer, a mentor to students and a treasured colleague. His leadership will be missed when he steps down at the end of June.
