A Message from the Chancellor

Dear fellow Brandeis members,

It is with great sadness that I advise you of the death of one of the giants of our profession, The Honorable Arlin M. Adams (ret.) Judge Adams died last evening after a long and storied career. Judge Adams served with distinction as a Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. His reputation as a Constitutional scholar was unrivaled. He formerly served as the Secretary of Public Welfare for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the national president of both the American Judicature Society and the American Philosophical Society.

Early in his career, Judge Adams served as clerk to Chief Justice Horace Stern. Among his many accomplishments and accolades, Judge Adams was Chancellor of the Philadelphia Bar Association, received the Bar Association’s Bar Medal, the Philadelphia Award, and the Jewish Law Day Award.

For additional information about Judge Adams’ career and accomplishments, please go to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arlin_M_Adams.

Funeral arrangements have not yet been published.

May his memory be for a blessing.

Sincerely,

Hon. A. Michael Snyder (ret.)
Chancellor, Louis D. Brandeis Law Society

Congratulations to Brandeis Members Jennifer Coatsworth, Steve Silver, and Lisa Margulies - Recognition for making a difference

We would like to take the time to congratulate Brandeis members Jennifer Coatsworth, Steve Silver, and Lisa Margulies for being recognized by media outlet Billy Penn for being three of the 18 young leaders making a difference in Philly's legal community. The article may be found here (http://billypenn.com/2015/06/18/whos-next-in-the-law-18-young-leaders-making-a-difference-in-phillys-legal-community). Jen, Lisa and Steve appear as numbers 3, 13, and 16, respectively. Please take a few moments to read about these impressive young lawyers and feel free to personally congratulate them on this honor as well. It is very satisfying to have Brandeis members overrepresented on this exclusive list.

Mentoring offers students and young attorneys the opportunity to connect one on one with attorneys and judges who can provide the benefit of their years of experience. The mentor relationship provides guidance for the next generation as they forge ahead in law school and as young attorneys. If you would like to sign up to connect with a Brandeis mentor, volunteer to be a mentor, or if you have any questions, click here to contact Samantha Mertz. Please provide your name, contact information, preferred practice area, school/graduation information (if applicable), and any goals you hope to achieve through this process.
