Drexel Law Honors Former Judge through Professorship in Legal Writing
In the College of Law’s inaugural event in its new building, a ceremony was held to honor Arlin M. Adams, former U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit judge. President Papadakis and Jennifer Rosato, acting dean of the College of Law, presented the judge with the Arlin M. Adams Professorship of Legal Writing, honorary membership in the College’s inaugural class, a Drexel Law sweatshirt and an engraved dragon statue in recognition of his professional accomplishments in legal writing and advocacy.
The professorship was supported by the Philadelphia-based law firm Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis. College of Law professor Terry Seligmann was formally named the Arlin M. Adams Professor of Legal Writing and director of the legal writing program.
Adams served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit from 1969 to 1987. He served as secretary of public welfare for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania from 1963 to 1966. Also, Adams was appointed as trustee in the New Era bankruptcy case, the largest nonprofit bankruptcy in history at that time, and chair of the commission investigating the prison riot at Camp Hill, Pa. He currently serves as counsel for Schnader.
A reception was held following the ceremony with members of the federal and local judiciary and the Drexel community.
