Three from the Class of '57 Return for Program
Three distinguished members of the Pitt Law Class of ’57 returned to campus to present a provocative panel discussion on the “Ethical Challenges facing Attorneys and Law Schools.”
Dick Thornburgh, Derrick Bell and Norman Rubash spoke before a capacity crowd at the Barco Law Building’s Teplitz Memorial Courtroom, offering more than 150 years of collective legal experience in legal education, politics, government, and business.
Thornburgh is a former U.S. attorney general, governor of Pennsylvania and Undersecretary General of the United Nations. He is presently a member of the Board of Trustees at the University of Pittsburgh and is of counsel with the Washington, D.C. office of Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Preston Gates Ellis LLP.
Derrick Bell is a visiting professor of constitutional law at New York University School of Law and renowned author of several books, including Ethical Ambition: Living a Life of Meaning and Worth. Professor Bell was the first African-American to receive tenure at Harvard Law School.
Norman Rubash is the former international executive vice president of Amoco Corporation.
