Dean Louis H. Pollak
John F.E. Hippe!, L'26, C'23, senior partner at
Obermayer, Rebmann, Maxwell and Hippe!, has retired
as General Chairman of Law School Alumni Annual
Giving after six years in that demanding post. I speak
for the Faculty of the Law School, and for the Officers
and the Trustees of the University, in expressing
gratitude to John Hippe! for his years of outstanding
leadership of the Law School Alumni Annual Giving
Campaign. I know that our appreciation is shared by all
of the alumni of the Law School.
Back in 1970 when John Hippe! assumed the
chairmanship, our Alumni Annual Giving Campaign
was a very modest endeavor in comparison with the
campaigns undertaken by the other major law schools.
Under John Rippel's leadership, we have made major
strides . The sums now contributed annually by alumni
and friends of the School- approximately $150,000constitute a significant part of the School's unrestricted
income. We still have a long way to go- some major law
schools raise two or three times as much per alumnus as
we do. However, if we continue to move forward with
the momentum John Hippe! has provided, we should,
within a few years, be able to bring our per capita rate of
annual giving up to levels worthy of a great Law School.
Because John Hippe!, through his untiring efforts,
provided the required momentum at a critical time in
the School's history, we are all in his debt.
I am gratified to report that Robert A. Gorman has
assumed the newly-created post of Associate Dean.
Professor Gorman, a specialist in Labor Law and in
Copyright, is widely known throughout the law school
world for his interest in broadening the scope, enriching
the content, increasing the intellectual coherence, and
strengthening the inter-disciplinary links of the legal
curriculum. As Associate Dean, Professor Gorman now
has formal responsibility for (I) giving shape and
momentum to the Faculty's long-term curricular
planning, and (2) linking those efforts to the parallel,
and equally crucial, process of Faculty recruitment.
I am equally gratified to report that Phyllis W. Beck,
formerly a member of the Temple Law School Faculty,
has assumed the Vice-Deanship. Since the resignation
of Vice-Dean Frank N. Jones last January (when Dean
Jones resumed the Executive Directorship of The
National Legal Aid and Defender Association), this
senior administrative post has been filled on an interim
basis by two colleagues who have served above and
beyond the call of duty- first, Professor Alexander M.
Capron, and then Professor Stephan R. Goldstein. As
Vice-Dean, Dean Beck has direct responsibility for all
matters affecting students. In addition, Dean Beck has
supervisory responsibility for admissions, placement,
alumni relations, and other administrative functions.
Dean Beck's substantial experience in practice, and in
law teaching and administration admirably fit her for
this vital assignment. I look forward with great
confidence to close collaboration with Deans Beck and
Gorman in guiding the work of the School.
The Law Alumni Journal, in its first year under the
leadership of Libby S. Harwitz, was the recipient of the
James Madison Exceptional Achievement Award ,
Madison Division, conferred by the Council for the
Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). I am
most pleased to extend congratulations to Libby for this
recognition. And I am equally pleased to announce that
she will be joining the Law Alumni office staff on a fulltime basis . In addition to her responsibility as editor of
the Journal, she will be working with Lloyd Herrick in
the Alumni Affairs and Annual Giving areas.

The 1976 Owen J. Roberts
Memorial Lecturer
Anthony Lester, Q.C.
This year's Roberts Lecture was held
Monday, October 18, and was
delivered by Anthony Lester,
Queen's Counsel. The lecture, entitled "Fundamental Rights in the
United Kingdom: The Law and the
British Constitution," explored some
of the consequences of the absence of
a coherent, written constitution, a
bill of rights, and judicial review for
the protection of fundamental rights
and freedoms m the United
Kingdom- elements badly needed in
their governmental structure. The
subject was examined in the context
of:
I. the United Kingdom's membership in the European Community and in the Council of
Europe
2. the government's proposals for
the devolution of power to
Scotland and Wales
3. direct rule and the troubles in
Northern Ireland
4. the operation of the electoral
process
5. current problems about Immigration, citizenship, and race
and sex discrimination
6. the traditional role of the
judiciary

Mr. Lester, appointed Queen's
Counsel in 1975, is a barrister, writer,
and broadcaster, as well as Special
Advisor to the Home Secretary. He
received his B.A. degree from Trinity
College, Cambridge, and his LL.M.
from Harvard Law School and has
published articles on international
law, race relations, and politics.
The Owen J. Roberts Memorial
Lecture was established in 1956,
honoring Roberts, Associate Justice
of the Supreme Court of the United
States from 1930-1935 and Dean of
the University of Pennsylvania Law
School from 1948-1951. The lecture
series is sponsored by The Order of
the Coif, the Law Alumni Society,
and the Law School. Support is
provided in the form of an endowment, given m 1975 by the
Philadelphia firm of Montgomery,
McCracken, Walker and Rhodes, in
memory of Justice Roberts, a founding partner of the firm.

Overture to Spring
Penn Law faculty and students are
not always embroiled in the serious
study oflaw. Sometimes they unite to
perform the works of composers like
Aaron Copeland and Gilbert and
Sullivan or to participate in recorder
ensembles.
At the spring concert this past
April , Professors Gorman and Leech
contributed their fine bass voices,
and
Professor
Schwartz
demonstrated his expertise on the
recorder, together with a group of
gifted students. The result was an
afternoon of varied entertainment to
satisfy everyone's tastes, from baroque works to an excellent production
of selections from Trial by Jury.
Should the pattern continue
another concert might be anticipated
around Christmastime.

WILLIAM F. HYLAND AND THE QUINLAN CONTROVERSY
A discussion of the Karen Ann Quinlan Case by New
Jersey Attorney General William F. Hyland, L'49,
highlighted the annual luncheon of the University of
Pennsylvania Chapter of The Order of the Coif on June
I.
In his address, Hyland explored the case and its final
decision , commenting also on his reasons for intervening in the trial- one that was to determine whether the
termination of life by "the discontinuance of all
extraordinary medical procedures sustaining her would
constitute homicide."
The Attorney General of the state of New Jersey is
vested with an extraordinary amount of criminal and
civil jurisdiction, and , as Hyland stated,
it is quite common for county prosecutors to confer
with us where significant cases of clear or potential
criminality are involved. The prosecutor of Morris
County had been named as a defendant in the
Quinlan complaint which , among other things,
sought to enjoin any criminal prosecution if Karen's
death followed the removal of life-support devices.
Beyond this there were broad ethical questions raised .
I decided to enter an appearance in the case so that its
progress could be monitored more readily and formal
intervention facilitated, should I decide this was in the
public interest.
At the pretrial conference, the Quinlan family
attorney had to abandon the judgement that Karen be
considered "dead." She failed to fulfill the common law
definition of death , which requires "the failure of the
heart and lung functions of the body," as well as the
definition of "brain death," a standard "formulated in
1968 by an ad hoc committee established at Harvard
Medical School."
8
Attorney General Hyland's office decided against
filing a Writ of Certiorari in the United States Supreme
Court for many reasons . Besides the overwhelmingly
emotional nature of the case, there was also the
consideration that the problem did not belong in the
court system but in the hands of the medical profession.
More important, said Hyland, was "the pathetic figure
in the intensive care unit at St. Clare's Hospital which
obscured the legal and medical issues surrounding the
case."
In a probing analysis of the final decision, Hyland
noted significantly,
While the only certainty in life is death, what
constitutes death is far from certain. Life, not death ,
has been the law's principal concern ... The Supreme
Court has rendered a decision of transcendent
importance. For the first time, national attention has
focused both on the determination of the occurrence
of death and on society's obligation with respect to
treatment of the terminally ill. To each citizen, the
ramifications of these issues are immediate and
enormous.
Karen Ann Quinlan still lives. Life-support devices
were removed from her several months ago , and she is
presently in a nursing home in New Jersey.
The Quinlan attorney then shifted his theory,
contending that "there is a constitutional right to die ,
guaranteed by the so-called right of privacy implied
from the Bill of Rights of the Federal Constitution and
from the Supreme Court decisions Griswold and Roe v.
Wade." He argued that Karen's right to die should be
left to the Quinlan family although her physicians
believed that "the termination of devices presumably
prolonging her life would be contrary to accepted
medical practice."
"It was at that point," stated Hyland, "that I decided
to remain in the case personally, for to suggest that I was
alarmed by the audacity of the application and its
potential threat to widely held notions of the sanctity of
life, and the state's obligation to protect it, is to put it
mildly."
The trial court held that Karen's father, as her
guardian, "be denied the requested authority to
authorize termination of life-support systems; that there
is no constitutional right to die; and that no such right is
exercisible by one person on behalf of another; and since
Karen did not satisfy any legal or medical definition of
death, her treatment should continue, its nature being a
matter for medical and not judicial determination."
The case was taken to the appellate court and, two
months later, the trial judge was reversed. The guardian,
in this instance Karen Ann Quinlan's father, acting in
concurrence with an "ethics committee of the hospital or
other institution," was given the authorization to
request termination of life-sustaining treatment.
ANATOMY OFA
CORPORATE FRAUD
Those fortunate enough to have attended the second
annual Thomas A. O'Boyle Lecture at the Law School
on April 15, experienced a forthright analysis of how
one of the great financial frauds in our country's history
was perpetrated .
Robert M. Loeffler, lawyer, author of mutual fund
legislation, and trustee of the Equity Funding Corporation, detailed the rise and collapse of that corporation,
which was initially formed in 1960 as the amalgamation
of two life insurance companies deriving earnings from
commissions on the sale of insurance policies. In 13
years time, Equity Funding Corporation grew to one of
50 of the largest financial institutions in the United
States, owning three life insurance companies and
involving itself in real estate, banking, and oil and gas
operations.
Troubles began surfacing when, in April of 1973, The
Wall Street Journal disclosed that the Equity Life
Insurance Company was built on fraud . In fact, further
examination proved the entire financial structure of the
Equity Funding Corporation without foundation . As
Loeffler stated , "Written off were $143.4 million of no
transactions. They were only figures on the books. The
company never made a profit and was , in fact , losing
money at the rate of at least $15 million per year."
So where did the monies go? One must assume , says
Loeffler, that the funds went "down the drain" since
there was no sign of diversion by the participants and
major principals of the fraud.
One wonders how such deception might go undetected for so long. Loeffler outlined the facts . The
SEC does not assume the responsibility of auditing the
books of companies. Before the time of Equity's
disclosures , state insurance departments were not
examining the financial status of companies. The
directors of the corporation- persons, according to
Loeffler, of unquestioned integrity- did not consider it
their function or within their capabilities to oversee the
auditors. The general counsel's responsibilities were in
the area of writing contracts and agreements.
The full responsiblilty for the financial accounting of
a company rests in the office of the auditors of that
company, and Equity Funding Corporation had never,
says Loeffler, had an audit. The fraud was committed
under the direct lines of the senior executive vicepresident of Equity Life Insurance Company and the
senior vice-president of finance.
Presently, a reorganization plan has been consummated , a new company has been launched , and $170
million in cash and securities are being returned to
creditors.
This enlightening lecture was made possible through
the Thomas A. O'Boyle Visiting Practitioner Fund,
founded by the friends and colleagues of the late Mr.
O'Boyle, L'40 . The fund's purpose is to induce
experienced and distinguished practitioners to make an
educational contribution to the life of the Center for the
Study of Financial Institutions, Penn Law School, and
the business community. The Lectures are delivered
annually.

LAW ALUMNI DAY
"It seems impossible that 20 years have elapsed since I
sat here as a student," remarked an alumnus of the Class
of'56. "Why, Leo Levin traditionally opened each of his
lectures with a well-delivered anecdote and here he is,
years later, still maintaining the custom."
That feeling of deja vu must have been experienced by
many who, this past Law Alumni Day, April 29,
watched and listened as Dean Emeritus Jefferson
Fordham and Professors Leo Levin and Louis Schwartz
paneled a seminar entitled, "The Faculty at Large." The
issues to which they addressed themselves were far from
nostalgic, however; they were ones of great contemporary moment, dealing with areas in which the panel
members are presently involved.
The problems of the cities, discussed by Mr.
Fordham, reflected his long-time commitment as
professor and activist to the correction of urban
maladies. Professor Schwartz focused his remarks on
the reform of the Federal Criminal Code, particularly
commenting on the revision of S.I, a subject of personal
concern to Schwartz who was Director of the National
Commission on the Reform of the Federal Criminal
Laws. Professor Levin, after his delightful opening

narrative, offered first-hand observations on the
restructuring of the federal appellate system, having
recently returned to the Law School after two years of
study and work in Washington as Executive Director of
the Commission on Revision of the Federal Court
Appellate System.
The annual meeting of the Law Alumni Society
followed the seminar, with Dean Louis H. Pollak and
Edwin P. Rome, L'40, President of the Society,
presenting annual reports. Nelson J. Leidner, L'36,
offered the Law Scroll of Immortals for his class. A
tribute to the memory of the late Robert Dechert, L'21,
who passed away this year, was delivered by Robert
Landis, L'47, his friend and former law partner.
The Alumni Society and faculty of the Law School
presented a citation to Flora Wolf, wife of the late
Edwin D. Wolf, L'63, "in recognition of his constant
service on behalf of the public interest; his compassion
for the disadvantaged and the dispossessed; his humility
and his personal courage. Ned Wolf was a lawyer who
believed that the legal order can be a just order, and he
devoted his exemplary career to vindicating this belief."
Ned Wolf passed away earlier this year.
The new President of the Law Alumni Society,
Thomas N. O'Neill, Jr., L'53, was introduced. Other
officers include David H. Marion, L'63, First VicePresident; Marshall A. Bernstein, L'49, Second VicePresident; Joseph G .J. Connolly, L'65, Secretary;
Patricia Ann Metzer, L'66, Treasurer; The newly elected
Board of Managers, with terms expiring in 1979, are
Richard L. Bazelon, L'68; Linda A. Fisher, L'73; Doris

ADDRESS DELIVERED
AT THE BICENTENNIAL
LAW CONVOCATION
By Philip C. Jessup,
(Retired) Judge,
International Court of Justice
A few weeks ago I heard President Meyerson refer
with enthusiasm to the great historian William Lecky. It
may not be amiss if I recall the experience of Lecky at a
dinner party in England when he was seated on the left
of a duchess. The duchess did not deign to turn to Lecky
until the savory course. She then looked him up and
down and said: "I suppose you do something; what is
it?''
Replied Lecky: "I am a historian, Your Grace."
"What a pity!" said the duchess: "I always think it is so
much better to let bygones be bygones."
The Bicentennial Law Convocation at the Zellerbach
Theater followed dinner. University President Martin
Meyerson conferred honGrary degrees upon William T.
Coleman, Jr., Secretary of Transportation of the United
States, who was escorted by Bernard G. Segal, L'31;
Thomas I. Emerson, Lines Professor, Yale Law School,
escorted by Bernard Wolfman, L'48, Former Dean of
the University of Pennsylvania Law School and
Fessfden Professor of Law, Harvard Law School;
Shirley M. Hufstedler, Judge, United States Court of
Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, escorted by Frederic L.
Ballard, L'42; Philip C. Jessup, (Retired) Judge
International Court of Justice, escorted by Robert L.
Trescher, L'37; and Clarence Morris, Professor
Emeritus, University of Pennsylvania Law School,
escorted by Dean Emeritus Jefferson B. Fordham,
Professor of Law, University of Utah College of Law.
Judge Jessup addressed the convocation. The judge's
speech which follows is reprinted in its entirety.

Her Grace would not share our enthusiasm for this
law convocation of a distinguished law school of a great
university. But 200 years ago we were freed from the
tyranny of kings and duchesses. The legal heritage of the
Bicentennial has been expounded by many of my betters
at whose feet I have sat in recent sessions of the
American Academy of Political and Social Science and
of the American Philosophical Society. Heeding the
proverb "shoemaker stick to your last," I shall recall
something of our heritage of international law, and I
hope my companions here who share my grateful
appreciation of the distinctions conferred upon us, will
forgive my egocentricity.
I shall crave indulgence for striking an even more
egoistic note in my own celebration of the Bicentennial.
My family traditions bracket 1776 on geographical
lines. In 1772 my wife's ancestor settled in Litchfield
County, Connecticut, where we now live. Some time
later, in 1818, my greatgrandfather moved from Long
Island to Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania. He
served there for 13 years as the Presiding Judge of the
lith Judicial District. There my grandfather was born.
In 1776 the territory, now embraced in Susquehanna
County, Pennsylvania, was then part of Litchfield
County, Connecticut. Connecticut claimed the territory
under its royal charter of 1662, which gave it rights
"from sea to sea." It took two Pennamite-Yankee wars
and a federal court decision in 1782 to settle the point
that the territory belonged to Pennsylvania. Coincidentally, 1782 was also the year in which the first American
law school was established. You ask where? Why in
Litchfield, Connecticut. I share the local pride in
claiming the "first" law school but pay tribute to George
Wythe's teaching of law in Virginia some years earlier.
The federal court which decided the territorial dispute
in favor of Pennsylvania was established under Article
IX of the Articles of Confederation that provided for the
settlement of boundary disputes between two or more
states. Julius Goebel described the court as "little more
than a panel of delegates from sister states" (Goebel,
The Law Practice of Alexander Hamilton vol. 1[1964],
p. 662). "The trial," he adds," ... reads like a diplomatic
negotiation" (Ibid ., p. 658). This probably accounts for
the Encyclopedia Britannica's calling it a "court of
arbitration appointed by the Continental Congress."
And why not? The 13 colonies in those days were treated
internationally as separate and sovereign states. The
Treaty of Alliance with France of 1778 was separately
ratified by resolution of the House of Delegates of
Virginia, and the Governor of Virginia transmitted the
act of ratification to the French Minister in Philadelphia
(Scott, Sovereign States and Suits [1925], 55-57).
12
Fea tured Even ts
In any case, we Americans early and late have
followed the principle that boundary disputes between
states, whether federated or fully independent, should
be settled by judicial decision. The judicial decider must
apply the law of nations, which today we more often call
international law.
International law was no stranger to the founding
fathers. Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution gives the
Congress the authority "to define and punish . . .
offenses against the Law of Nations."
True it is that Mr. Jefferson in the Declaration of
Independence does not use the term "law of nations,"
but in the language of leading seventeenth and
eighteenth century writers on international law such as
Grotius, Puffendorf, and Rutherforth, the "law of
Nature" and the "law of nations" are interchangeable
labels. Vattel, who was quoted by the Supreme Court in
early years more than any other internationallawyer23 times in the Reports from 1789 to 1820- wrote in
1758 that "the law of nations is originally no more than
the law of nature applied to nations," and such is indeed
the subtitle of Vattel's treatise (p. 50; the English
translation , published in Northampton, Mass., 1805).
Shortly after he was admitted to the Bar in 1767,
Jefferson prepared for a student of the law an outline
which undoubtedly reflected his own studies under
George Wythe , the great law teacher whose pupils also
included John Marshall and who was to be one of the
signers of the Declaration of Independence . Jefferson's
prescribed reading list included Vattel on natural law
(Bowers, The Young Jefferson [1945], p. 32).
Alexander Hamilton argued the applicability of the
law of nations in 1784 in a case under the Trespass Act
decided by the Mayor's Court of New York City. In the
opinion written by Mayor and Chief Judge Duane, the
Court declared:
The truth is, that the law of nations is a noble and
most important institution. The rights of
sovereigns, and the happiness of the human race,
are promoted by its maxims and concerned for its
vindication (Goebel, The Law Practice of Alexander Hamilton, vol. I [1964], p. 400).
Indeed as early as 1692, a point of international law
was argued in the Supreme Court of Judicature of the
Province of New York (Hamlin and Baker, Supreme
Court of Judicature of the Province of New York, 16911704, vol. II [ 1952], p. 308).
Of the many cases on boundary problems subsequently decided by the Supreme Court, that between
New Jersey and Delaware was embellished in 1934 by
the noble phrases of Mr. Justice Cardozo who wrote:
International law, or the law that governs states,
has at times, like the common law within states, a
twilight existence during which it is hardly
distinguishable from morality or justice, till at
length tne imprimatur of a court attests its jural
quality (291 U.S. 361 [1934]).
One might add that its jural quality is also attested by
the eminent authority of the instruction in international
law offered today in leading law schools such as that of
which we are guests this evening.
The Supreme Court's decisions on interstate boundaries have been influenced by and in turn have
influenced the decisions of international tribunals. The
Jay Treaty of 1794 provided for arbitration of disputed
boundaries. In the International Court of Justice at The
Hague there have been adjudications on such widely
separated boundaries as those of Cambodia-Thailand,
Honduras-Nicaragua, and Belgium-Holland.
As in other types of litigation, the defeated litigant is
apt to be disgruntled. Discussing the 1782 decision
favoring the Pennsylvania claim to the territory
disputed with Connecticut, Hamilton wrote in the
Seventh Federalist Paper that "Connecticut gave strong
indications of dissatisfaction. . . . She, no doubt,
sincerely believed herself to have been injured by the
decision; and States, like individuals, acquiesce with
great reluctance in determinations to their disadvantage."
In the 1903 arbitration of the Canadian-United States
Alaskan boundary, Lord Alverstone, the Lord Chief
Justice of England, agreed with the American arbitrators and, when denounced by the Canadians,
declared: "If, when any kind of arbitration is set up they
don't want a decision based on the law and the evidence,
they must not put a British judge on the commission"
(Jessup, The Price of International Justice [1971], p.
12).
Philadelphia had a considerable interest in international law. I do not attribute that interest entirely to
the fact that the leading American case on diplomatic
immunities was decided here in the Pennsylvania Court
of Oyer and Terminer in 1784; I have in mind, of course,
the case in which Charles Julian de Longchamps was
fined 100 French crowns and imprisoned until ... the
4th of July 1786 in that he did on Market Street
"unlawfully and insolently ... threaten and menace
bodily harm and violence" to Francis Barbe Marbois,
Secretary of the French Legation (Respublica v.
DeLongchamps I Dall. III [Pa. 1784]).
Philadelphia's interest was more substantial. As early
as 1747 French privateers were raiding commerce in the
Delaware; 12 Philadelphia vessels were seized in that
year. In Philadelphia there was excitement and fear
(Fay, Franklin, The Apostle of Modern Times [1929],
pp. 209-211 ). When Franklin years later in 178~ was
negotiating the treaty of Peace with England, he
expounded at length to Oswald, the British commissioner, his views on privateering: "The practice of
robbing merchants on the high seas, a remnant of the
ancient piracy, though it may be accidentally beneficial
to particular persons, is far from being profitable to all
engaged in it, or to the nation that authorizes it." The sea
robbers, Franklin said, spend "what they get in riot,
drunkenness and debauchery, lose their habits of
industry, are rarely fit for any sober business after peace,
and serve only to increase the number of highwaymen
and housebreakers (Wheaton, History of the Law of
Nations, reprint of the 1845 edition by Garland
Publishing, Inc. [ 1973], pp. 308-309).
However, the ship Grange, sailing in 1793 down the
river from Philadelphia, was captured in Delaware Bay
not by a privateer but by the French frigate L'Embuscade. Attorney General Randolph wrote a classic
opinion citing seven renowned international law
treatises to prove that Delaware Bay was all within the
territory of the United States. Secretary of State
Jefferson in a letter to Gouverneur Morris, then our
Minister to France, demanded from France the release
of the ship and its crew (Jessup, The Law of Territorial
Waters and Maritime Jurisdiction [1927], p. 395).
You may say I labor the obvious in stressing that
international law was well known to the statesmen of
1776, but incidents like the Mayaguez make us wonder
whether the "statesmen" of 1976 need to be reminded of
that body of law. And in these days when the
Congress- quite properly- is seeking to exercise a
more influential role in foreign policy, the Senate of the
United States could promote the rule of international
law by repealing the malodorous Connally Amendment
by which it limited the jurisdiction of the International
Court of Justice.
In his first draft of a constitution for Massachusetts in
1779, John Adams stated that tohe end in view was a
government of laws, not of men. John Marshall put the
imprimatur of the Court on the maxim in Marbury v.
Madison. Internationally, we still lack the government,
but we have the laws- the laws of nations. Some of our
politicians- ! do not say statesmen- need to be
reminded that under those laws small states are equal to
the great, and it is law and not one man's electioneering
rhetoric which governs the rights of the United States in
the Panama Canal Zone and elsewhere.

Perhaps when we celebrate the Tricentennial, we shall
be part of a world community united under some form
of government, more complete than that provided by
the Charter of the United Nations but still as tenuous as
that provided by the Articles of Confederation. We may
sign a Declaration of Interdependence. If it be said that
the progress is too slow, I recall what a great American
Secretary of State, Elihu Root, said on his significant
trip around South America 70 years ago: "Slow as
measured by our lives, perhaps, but not slow as
measured by the lives of nations" (Jessup, Elihu Root,
vol. I [ 1938], p. 484). Whatever -the form of world
government, it must, in Adams' phrase, be a government of laws and not of men. Law does not stop at the
water's edge.
LAW ALUMNI DAY

COMMENCEMENT 1976
Springtime marks commencement at the Law School.
Black robes and mortar boards are donned, camera
lenses click furiously, and combined feelings of
excitement, anticipation, accomplishment, and relief
charge the atmosphere.
Dean Louis H. Pollak addressed those gathered in the
Law School courtyard, particularly the graduates of the
Class of 1976, noting that "at the start of your studies of
law, you may have had some real reasons of uncertainty
as to whether, by the time these studies were completed
this Bicentennial year, our legal institutions would be
worth the shouldering. Within a matter of weeks after
you entered the School of Law, the Vice-President of the
United States resigned his office, an unprecedented
event." The Dean went on to describe how we, as "a
nation of law and in law," survived those traumatic
years because of the strength of our legal system.
Quoting Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, who was the
recipient of an honorary degree awarded by the
University of Pennsylvania earlier that day, Pollak said,
"What happens from here forward is primarily up
to you." Although the Chief Justice was addressing, of course, the 5,000 graduates of the
University, I take the liberty of supposing that he
was particularly addressing those who are
graduating in law. Like it or not, this nation is one
which has put its faith in law and lawyers as the
architects of our forward movement. The next
half-century of our future history lies in your
hands .... I hope, most particularly, that you will
remember a fellow alumnus, one who graduated
today not in law but in humane letters, the aged
but more youthful than us, Henry Steele Commager. I hope that you will make a history worthy
of his recordings.
Following remarks from 1976 class president, Martha
W. Bush, Dean Pollak recognized as an Honorary
.Fellow of the University of Pennsylvania Law School

E ve~l ls
the late Ned Wolf, L'63. The citation, presented to Flora
Wolf, stated:
Ned Wolf was a graduate of this School who
devoted his exemplary career to public service. His
name is inextricably linked to the developing
public interest bar in Philadelphia. He established
and led the Philadelphia Lawyers Committee for
Civil Rights Under Law under the sponsorship of
the Philadelphia Bar Association. He founded and
was the first Director of the Public Interest Law
Center of Philadelphia. Further, Ned Wolfs
presence and sympathetic pressure moved
numerous lawyers and others into public service
and thus extended his impact beyond his own
cases or those of the organizations he led. Ned
Wolf continued his public service work under the
most trying and difficult personal conditions. His
life exemplified courage, service, and compassion
for the dispossessed. We hold his memory in
esteem and commend his example to the
generations of lawyers who go forth from this
school.
Alexander Polikoffwas then designated an Honorary
Fellow. A leading practitioner from Chicago, Mr.
Polikoff has moved his efforts entirely into the field of
public interest. He is presently Executive Director of the
Business and Professional Persons for Public Interest, a
leading public-interest law firm. After a I 0-year effort,
Mr. Polikoff won the unanimous decision in the
Supreme Court case, Hills v. Gautreaux, remaking
much of the law of remedies in the effective implementation of racial integration in low-income housing. Mr.
Polikoffs eloquent message to the Commencement Day
gathering is reprinted here.
Following the presentation of certificates, awards ,
and diplomas, a reception was held in honor of the
graduates of the Class of 1976 .

REFLECTIONS-5/28/76
By Alexander Polikoff,
Honorary Fellow,
University of Pennsylvania
Law School
I trust you are all suitably sympathetic to one faced
with the task of addressing a graduating class these days.
I refer to our almost daily encounters with new titles,
such as The End of the American Era; with analyses,
such as Toynbee's, that as an affluent country we have
little to look forward to but a permanent state of seige;
and , indeed- with what we are told by our own sensesthat traditional value systems in America appear to be
breaking down, that standards and tastes erode, that
cities decay and the quality of life declines. Everywhere
we look we seem to see festering corruptions and failures
ofleadership. No , I say to you candidly, there is a certain
awkardness about the prospect from the commencement podium.
I can't advise you to ignore those analyses , or what
your own senses tell you about the state of the country
and the world. But I can give you a suggestion about
how one might navigate in these psychically heavy seas.
I don't know that my prescription will work for
everyone, and I certainly don't pretend that it's designed
to withstand rigorous analysis. But it may work for
some, as I think it has worked for me. In any event, its
about all I have to offer-and a commencement is no
place for rigorous analysis anyway.
My prescription is simply this. Early in your career
select some area of interest or curiosity in the broader
society around you , related at least indirectly to law or
government but having nothing directly to do with your
own vocational activity. It matters not whether the
subject is health care , or the criminal justice correctional
system, or municipal garb&ge collection. Pick whatever
strikes your fancy and begin to read in and around that
subj ect. Ponder it; consider its simplicities and its
complexities. Talk to people about it, experts and
laymen alike. Add that special focus , whatever it is, to
the other interests in your life. You will learn, as you
18

t
gather momentum, as you read and observe and talk,
that the experts are less expert than they are generally
assumed to be, that the axioms in the field are not
necessarily axiomatic, that conventional wisdom,
accepted as gospel in one decade , has turned out to be
the shibboleth of the next. You will learn that beneath
the surface lurk all sorts of connections and
relationships between your chosen subject and other
aspects of your life: it really is true , you will come to see,
that life is a seamless web. And as you begin to talk with
more confidence about your subject you will make
friends and you will offend , you will have fun and you
will be burdened , you will be frustrated and you will be
enthused .
Then some day, I predict, when you have become
particularly frustrated or especially enthused about
some aspect of what you have long since come to regard
as an abiding interest, you will be moved to reach
beyond study; you will find yourself wanting to do
something. And you will. You may try to persuade those
with power to conduct themselves differently. You may
write and publish, or you may organize your fellow
citizens, or you may counsel with legislators. If the
matter is an appropriate one for litigation you may turn
to the courts and try your luck there. You may even be
drawn into public service. If you are successful in any of
these endeavors you will be pleased and perhaps useful.
But whatever the result, you and your society will be the
better for your having tried. And, in any event, you will
have had the satisfaction and the pleasure that comes
from involvement and commitment.
I do not give you this prescription without an
awareness of having made certain assumptionspossessing certain prejudices, if you will- four in
number, to be precise, which in fairness I should make
explicit. The first is that the affairs of men are cyclical.
Life is like a pendulum which inevitably reverses itself.
As surely as there are good times and bad times, the one
will follow the other. Indeed, it is not always possible,
except from the looking-back perspective of history, to
determine the direction in which we are moving at any
particular time. Does Watergate reveal the growing
corruption of our system, or its recuperative powers?
Will the proliferation of nuclear technology lead to the
violent degradation of life on the planet or to a hopeful
new form of international cooperation born of
necessity? My first assumption is that we can't be certain
of the answers to questions like these, and I therefore
reject prophecies of the certain doom of mankind.
My second, somewhat similar, prejudice is to assert
that there exists at least a possibility of saving our
American system, as it is called , and that the system is
worth saving. I believe that the best instincts in America
are very good instincts indeed and that trying to nurture
and preserve them and the system in which they root is
not a quixotic endeavor. Returning from an Eastern
European visit, Tom Wicker once wrote that government there was "faceless, unreachable, sovereign, the
system arbitrary, the individual reduced to a whispered
conversation in the bathroom with the water running."
He said that what was best to come back to in America
was the knowledge that for all its faults, and they are
many,
[t]his country has not yet deprived its most impudent,
its most troublesome , of their right to be free ; its
courts can still tell the government ... that justice and
the law do not change with administrations; and its
populace can mass peacefully and march militantly.
Wicker added, "It is that kind of freedom ... above all,
and at whatever cost, that must be preserved in
America." And I would add that if that kind of freedom
seems more imperiled in America now than when
Wicker wrote , as I believe it to be, that is the more
reason , not the less, to work to preserve it.
My third assumption or prejudice is that one person,
including particularly one canny, dedicated lawyer,
can- at least if he or she is lucky- make something of a
difference. Time magazine once had this to say of Ralph
Nader,
In an increasingly computerized , complex and
impersonal society, one persistent man can actually
do something about the forces that often seem to
badger him- he can, indeed, shake and change big
business, big labor and even bigger government.
I won't regale you with anecdotal history. But Nader has
made a difference, and so have other lawyers. In the
Chicago area alone in recent years two industrious
lawyers have succ~eded in an imaginative lawsuit that
has drastically modified the rules of as sacrosanct an
arrangement as political patronage; another lawyer has
pervasively affected the entire institutionalized system
for meting out what passes for care and justice to
juveniles; still another lawyer, having steeped himself in
the esoterica of coke ovens, effected a multimillion
dollar agreement with the nation's largest steel company
to clean up the major source of air pollution in Gary ,
Indiana. And so on.
Finally, my last bias is that following my prescription
will be fun . It will be much more fun , I suggest, than
closing one's self off from the broader society. John
Gardner once spoke of what he called the "subtle exit
from grimy problems of the day," that is, immersing
yourself so deeply in a specialized professional field that
the larger community virtually ceases to exist. Experience tells me that those who take that exit don't truly
enjoy the way others do. "Top accomplishment," said
Sidney Cox, "is reached when we care a lot and still have
fun . Far from being a function of frivolity or
indifference, grand fun has to do with guts. With
confidence, complete commitment, and a kind of fatal
preference for the slim chance."
Indeed , I will argue , with tongue only slightly in
cheek, that it may be biologically sound to proceed with
a psychological focus on man's favorable rather than
Featured Events
19
unfavorable possibilities and to engage in what might be
called do-gooderism on his behalf. I am reminded in this
respect of a paragraph from Loren Eisley which runs
like this:
Every spring in the wet meadows and ditches I hear a
little shrilling chorus which sounds for all the world
like an endlessly reiterated "We are here, we are here,
we are here." And so they are, as frogs of course.
Confident little fellows . I suspect that to some greater
ear than ours, man's optimistic pronouncements
about his role and destiny may make a similar little
ringing sound that travels a small way out into the
night. It is only its nearness that is offensive. From the
heights of a mountain, or a marsh at evening, it
blends, not too badly, with all the other sleepy voices
that, in croaks or chirrups, are saying the same thing.
The point of this lovely quotation, of course, is not that
man's croaks and chirrups are offensive, which they
sometimes are , but that it is in the nature of man, as it is
in the nature of frogs, to join the shrilling chorus.
And so, I suggest, there is a choice to be made by each
of you, beginning now, between joining the chorus and
remaining in the audience, between the subtle exit and
the fatal preference. Select the fatal preference, I urge
you. The grand fun of involvement will be yours. And who knows- something useful may come of it.
ENDINGS AND BEGINNINGS:
A Retrospective View from
the Law School Class of '72
A parched and sheepish study
Of a promotion ceremony
With a degree of diplomacy
We graduate from somewhere
And often from something
But to what do we graduate?
Graduation is not just a completion
It is also a progression
Not the sum total of courses taken
and texts read
But of experiences and exposures
A finishing and a beginning
A refining and a redefining.
A parched and sheepish study
Of a promotion ceremony
With a degree of diplomacy
Graduation involves
Knowing what you were
Realizing what you are
Who you've become
Planning what you will be
Who you will become
No wonder they call them
Commencement exercises.

A Message from the Chairman
John F.E. Hippel
The following pages detail the results of our most
successful Law School Alumni Annual Giving program
for 1975-76. The total of$144, 180 is an all-time high and
an increase of almost $7,000 over last year. It is also
significant that the number of donors jumped from 1,
523 to 1, 608.
The last six years have been very rewarding to me as I
have had the pleasure of working for the Law School as
General Chairman for Annual Giving. My associations
with members of the annual giving organization and the
many alumni who have recognized the significant
impact that a successful program has on the well-being
of the Law School has given me much pleasure.
I am confident that Law School Annual Giving will
continue to grow through the years to meet the
expanding need for spendable resources. I take this
opportunity to thank two superb Deans-Bernard
Wolfman and Louis Pollak-the annual giving
chairmen and agents, and all alumni for their responsiveness and support.

THE BICENTENNIAL
CONFERENCE ON
THE CONSTITUTION
Editor's Note: The Bicentennial Conference on the
United States Constitution was one of the highlights of
this year's 1976 celebration in Philadelphia.
Organized by Professor of Law Marvin E.
Wolfgang, who is Director of the Center for Studies in
Criminology and Criminal Law here at Penn and also
President of the American Academy of Political and
Social Sciences, the conference was a rare aggregation
of lawyers, scholars, and opinion leaders.
Those in attendance at the four-day conference
explored the origins and philosophy of the Constitution, its effect on American life over the past 200 years,
and the Constitution's ability to meet the needs of our
society in the future.
Many of the Law School faculty were active
participants at the conference. Dean Pollak was the
Conference Keynoter; Professor Covey Oliver was the
Keynoter for the United States and World Committee;
Professor Clyde Summers was a conference conferee;
and Professors Bender, Field, Freedman, Goodman,
Frug, Honnold, Leech, and Schulhofer acted as
rapporteurs for the plenary sessions, where the four
major conference themes were discussed.
An Article by Professor
Marvin E. Wolfgang
of Dean Pollak's superb keynole address. A report of
the conference appears in the July Annals of the
American Academy of Political and Social Sciences.
Further publication in book form, which offers a more
complete document of the conference and includes
Professor Covey Oliver's excellent paper on the United
States and the World Committee will be forthcoming.
What follows is an edited transcription of an
interview with Professor Wolfgang, discussing the
history of the American Academy of Political and
Social Sciences, how the concept of the conference on
the Constitution was developed and became a reality,
and what was reaped from this successful venture.
Incidentally, a stenographic record was made of all
the discussions in the four committees noted above and
The American Academy of Political and Social
Sciences, founded in 1889, presently numbers about 17
or 18 thousand members. Since 1890, it has been
publishing bimonthly Annals, each issue a substantial
publication involving 15 to 18 articles, all devoted to a
specific topic which might be political, economic,
sociological, or educational in nature and, to a great
extent, concerned with domestic affairs and foreign
policy. The varied topics explored range considerably
from old age to medical care to the publishing business
to crime.
Two years ago, Walter Phillips, then a member of the
Academy's Board of Directors, suggested that we do
something in celebration of the Bicentennial. After
searching for ideas, a suggestion was made that a
conference on the Constitution be held. We liked that
idea despite the fact that the Constitution was not
created in 1776. After considerable deliberation, we
found a way to tie the Constitution with the Declaration
of Independence, namely by suggesting that the
Constitution was a codification of much of the spirit and
sets of values and beliefs that were promulgated in the
Declaration of Independence. With the collective
wisdom of an organizing committee of the Academy
which included Dean Pollak and [Professor] Covey
Oliver from the Law School; Senator Joseph Clark;
Richard Lambert, Vice-President of the Academy,
Editor of the Annals, and a professor at Penn; Lee
Benson, also a professor here at Penn; and myself, it was
decided that the title for the Conference be Revolution,
the Constitution and America's Third Century.
The Bicentennial Committee of the Sun Oil Company, now known as the Sun Company, offered to fund
our project, and after initial reluctance regarding our
affiliation with an oil company that had a past history of
considerable political conservatism but recognizing that
21
there had been change over the years, the board
accepted their very gracious offer. We were funded to
the tune of approximately $270,000. If anyone has ever
feared working with a large corporation- and we are
discussing corporate rather than foundation funds
here- one should take a lesson from our extraordinarily
good experiences. The Sun Company was extremely
gracious to us, imposing no restrictions or strings of any
kind. They were helpful, as a matter of fact, and never a
hindrance.
So we were in business. Varney Truscott became our
most outstanding Bicentennial coordinator, and our
organizing committee sat down and, after months of
hard work and deliberation , determined the structure of
the conference and the persons whom we wished to
invite. We decided to divide approximately 75 or 80
persons into four separate committees, each working
simultaneously for the purpose of discussing the
intellectual antecedents, the evolutionary development,
the dissemination of the Constitution abroad and,
finally , for the purpose of deliberating on the future
prospects of the viability of our Constitution and any
kinds of amendments and changes that might be made.
Our purpose was not to end the four-day conference
with resolutions and new amendments. Clearly that
couldn't be done in such a short period of time, although
we did, in fact , bring together outstanding constitutional historians and constitutional lawyers from
academia as well as from the practice of law; members of
the Federal Bench, including former Justice Tom Clark;
and representatives from business, industry, labor,
public interest groups , consumer groups, etc. We
wanted to have a relatively broad representation but
were not looking, obviously, for exact random
representation from the United States population. We
were looking primarily for people who have devoted a
considerable amount of their professional careers and
concerns to Constitutional issues- people like Lou
Pollak, who is a professor and a writer. We wanted
people who have dealt with Constitutional issues,
however peripheral, such as George Reedy, President
Johnson's press secretary, who was right in the fracas
dealing with the first amendment on more than one
occasion.
The established four committees were designed to
carve out specific foci so that there would not be a
general rambling of the discussions of the Constitution.
Penn Law School Professors Paul Bender and Martha
Field participated as rapporteurs for Committee I, The
Maintenance of Revolutionary Values; Professors
James Freedman and Frank Goodman worked with
Committee II, The Effectiveness of Governmental
22
Th e Bicentenn ial Conference
Operation; Professors Gerald Frug and John Honnold
with Committee III, The Shaping of Public Policy; and
Professors Noyes Leech and Stephen Schulhofer with
Committee IV, The United States and The World.
Judge William Hastie and I opened the conference at
Independence Hall. That was probably the last public
act in which the Judge participated, and his short
opening remarks are published in the July Annals. The
Conference Chairman was Herbert Wechsler, Director
of the American Law Institute and Professor of Law at
Columbia. Dean Louis Pollak of the Law School
delivered the Conference's keynote speech.
The Conference was an extraordinary success in that
it produced stimulating dialogue among many people
who knew one another and who came together for four
pleasant days in order to discuss issues centering on the
particular committee topics. There was a noncompetitive, collegial spirit present, which is rarely seen
at such conferences. No one was attempting to "one-up"
another's remarks, and there was a genuine interest in
discussing Constitutional issues. The high-level intellectual camaraderie that existed made discussion, I think,
most exciting. Many of those in attendance are veteran
conference-goers, and reports from them were that this
was one of the best ever.
The conference concluded on a relatively conservative note even though we had probably the most
liberal judges in the country present. No one suggested
any radical changes in the Constitution; instead, tl}e
notion was reinforced that the sets of values reflected in
the words of the Constitution ought to be preserved. It
might be interesting to mention an ironic by-product of
the conference here. A very right-wing organization
known as the Liberty Lobby picketed us both at
Independence Hall and at Powell House where we held
our committee meetings. They obviously misunderstood what we were doing, for they thought that
our purpose was to destroy the Constitution.
Besides the report of the conference, which was
published in the July issue of The Annals of the
American Academy of Political and Social Sciences, a
further post-conference publication in book form , a
more complete document of the conference, is available
with complete issue papers. In it, the rapporteurs
provide more substantial, analytical, and, to some
extent, prescriptive pieces dealing with each of the
committee topics. Those papers have traditional
scholarly footnotes , case law and formal attributions,
making use of the transcripts that each rapporteur had
from the committees and reflecting the liveliness and
provoking, stimulating discussion present in the
sesstons.

By Richard C. Csaplar, L' 59
Editor's Note: Richard Csaplar is a successful, highly
respected Boston lawyer. He is also a maverick- an
engagingly witty one at that-whose attitudes and
actions happen to suggest that there is more to a lawyer's
life than practicing law.
Csaplar's firm, while following the framework of a
legal practice with all the attendant responsibilities, has
developed a work sty le to combat the feeling of
confinement and to prevent the tedium that threatens
those in the profession. Their solution? A sabbatical
program, designed for the firm's partners, that uses the
profession as an instrument for exposure to other modes
of life and offers the freedom to travel or to live
wherever one chooses for a year.
Another innovative concept has been employed by
Nessen and Csaplar in order to encourage associates to
commit some of their time for work on behalf of the
public interest. Of the four vacation weeks given to each
associate, one week is requested to be spent workingfor
the public interest- a week to be matched at a later time
by thefirm.
Eleven years ago, Csaplar and his partner, Robert
Nessen, left New York and the large firm where they had
been practicing/or some time and relocated in Bostonan area they felt to be cosmopolitan enough for their
business practice, yet without the pressure and hectic
tempo of New York City. Their firm presently numbers
upwards of 30 members.
Richard Csaplar and his family, aided by a Fulbright
grant, took their sabbatical in 1974-75. What follows is
the thoroughly entertaining account of the Csaplars and
their year-long adventure in Afghanistan.
As my wife describes our sabbatical year abroad,
perhaps with some lack of origin~lity, "[i]t was a far, far
better thing than we have ever done." Yet, a year ago last
fall when I experienced my first earthquake 7,000 miles
from home , considerable doubt formed in my mind. At
the time, I was discussing Watergate with the Deputy
Minister of Justice in a former royal palace in Kabul, the
capital of Afghanistan. To calm my panic, he told me
that Moslem tradition decrees that during an earthquake its victims should walk a set number of paces, no
more, no less, from their original positions. It was this
timely little piece of advice that began my education in
Islamic law.
23
How did a financial lawyer from staid old Boston
come to spend a year half way around the world as
foreign advisor to the Supreme Court of Afghanistan?
The answer can be attributed to what we like to think of
as a unique law firm sabbatical program. Every six to
nine years or so, each member of our firm is entitled to
take a one-year sabbatical leave.
In my case, I applied for and got a position in a thirdworld country. Admittedly, at the time of applying, we
viewed ourselves in our minds' eye, on the beach at Rio,
under the palms of Tahiti, or on big game safaris in East
Africa . Nevertheless, when the opportunity arose in faroff Afghanistan, we took our three sons and set out for
our new home in Kabul. The rule we set for ourselves
was that each of us had to have a formal work or study
program. It was not to be an extended vacation. My wife
became the first resident speech therapist, as far as we
know , to have practiced in Afghanistan, and the two
older boys took a year off from college to teach English
to Afghan adults much older than they. Our youngest
son attended high school at the American International
School in Kabul. This was how we chose to fulfill the
purpose behind our firm's sabbatical program, a
program designed to provide opportunities for new and
different experiences for the firm's lawyers and their
families in the hopes that their lives will be thereby
enriched .
Essentially, the program works like this: The
sabbatical-taker has but one restriction placed on his
field of activity. He may not practice law in Boston or
with another law firm . Except for that, the whole world
is his oyster and the entire range of human endeavor is
his caviar. Of the first five people to take or plan
sabbaticals, one other and I chose advisory work in
third-world nations; one lawyer bought a mobile home
and , for a full year, toured America from sea to sea;
another, with an artistic bent, catelogued a heretofore
unexamined collection of art works that had been willed
to the public by a private collector; and the last is now in
Rumania under a Fulbright grant studying land-use
planning in a communist society.
The financial arrangements made by the firm
encourage (without requiring) participation in gainful
activities rather than a year-long vacation. The formula
is complex, but essentially the sabbatical-taker ends up
with compensation equal to about 40 percent of what he
would have received had he remained at the firm. This
compensation gives the sabbatical-taker a basic stipend
and enables him to live reasonably well especially if he
also receives scholarship money; however, underdeveloped nations can give only modest pay or grant
money to their advisors . Since, to date, no partner
24
Someth ing Different
whose turn has come has declined to take advantage of
the program, we have not yet decided whether
sabbaticals are mandatory or voluntary. My own
personal view is that, because of some inherent internal
compet1t1ve disadvantages
which a returning
sabbatical-taker faces within our or any other law firm,
the sabbatical should be mandatory.
Except for this, our feeling is that the fewer rules the
better. The goal of the program is to expand the
individual, not to provide professional firm growth.
This point cannot be made strongly enough. Our
sabbatical year is to give the lawyer an opportunity to
break away and "do what he has always wanted to do";
to write, teach, study, travel, or loaf. It is not designed
directly to meet the needs of the law firm.
Lest I have portrayed the view that, in my case, all was
seriousness, let me add that in the process of personal
expansion I personally expanded into second place in
the leveled-doubles-February-frostbite tennis tournament in Kabul (because of the local prevelance of
amoebic dysentary, some wag threatened that the cup
with which I was to be presented was to be a feces
specimen cup), and lolled on beaches in various exotic
places such as the Persian Gulf, Arabian Sea, and Gulf
of Siam. My wife expanded into the knowledge that a
house kept by servants is more fun to live in than one
kept solely by her, and my sons expanded into the
knowledge that a pickup team of American teenagers
can compete pretty well with the top basketball teams of
many foreign countries.
I had never studied either Islamic or comparative law
before my arrival in Afghanistan. As a result I could not
and did not concern myself with the substantive law of
the country. Rather, I limited my work to helping the
very able chief judicial administrator of Afghanistan,
Justice Karimi, with his task of modernizing the courts.
In this job I was aided by the new-found knowledge that
all legal systems everywhere have certain identical basic
needs. No matter what system of law is used, timely
decisions made by honest, knowledgeable judges, based
on facts properly introduced into evidence, are better
than long-delayed decisions made by dishonest,
ignorant judges, based on perjured evidence.
Thus, I worked, more or less successfully, on such
things as opening a new law library, introducing the
publication of cases into the legal system, and teaching a
course in modern financial law techniques to bank
lawyers. I also worked on and totally failed in solving
the problem of congestion in the Afghan courts. After
all , if I could solve that worldwide problem, I could
probably have considered myself as one of humanity's
saviors.
But Afghanistan gave us much more than we gave
her. Learning to live in a new culture with a new
language was a continuous adventure. We learned to
bargain for everything we bought, from rugs to taxi
fares. We traveled across hundreds of miles of almost
roadless Central Asia to see Bhuddas ten stories high
carved into the side of mountains and ruins of cities
destroyed by Ghengis Khan. We viewed sports such as
buz-kashi and tent pegging, which are the remnants of
cultures centuries old. The former is a pololike sport
played by two teams of 10 horsemen each in which the
object is to carry a decapitated goat to the goal; in the
latter sport, tribal horsemen attempt to spear a tent peg
with a lance while they ride by at full tilt.
According to United Nation's statistics, Afghanistan
is one of the 10 least developed nations in the world. It
has a per capita income of under $1 00; 50 percent of all
children die under the age of 10; adult life expectancy is
under 40; the literacy rate is somewhere around 5
percent, give or take a point; 10 percent of all women die
in childbirth; there are no sanitation systems, pure water
systems, railroads, or TV's; most women still wear
chadri, a tentlike costume that covers them from head to
foot so that they cannot be seen; vegetable fields are
fertilized with human feces; and there is almost no
manufacturing.
The people were invariably friendly to us as we
traveled in the countryside. Indeed, we rapidly became
used to being a tourist sight for the local population.
Wherever we went, our family was an object of interest
to those around us, and we collected a crowd . I
remember eating in the local "choi-hona," or teahouse ,
of a remote village while dozens of people gathered
around to watch the Americans with their strange
clothes and eating habits. We thought it would be fun to
gather them all togetper for a group picture, and I
announced our intention in Dari, the most widely
spoken of the local languages. Many from the group
quickly ran away. We thought that perhaps they were
too shy to have their pictures taken. But no, most of
them soon returned carrying a prize possession such as a
fighting bird or wearing a new turban so that each would
look his best. (As usual , in Afghanistan, all those
present were men- not a woman in sight.) I took some
pictures, and then a strange thing happened. I was asked
for an immediate copy of a picture. It seems that there is
no corner of the world so remote that the Polaroid Land
camera is not known. It took a lot of work to explain
that my camera could not also develop pictures. So it is
that the trappings of modern life precede its essentials in
the developing nations , for even in that remote place we
could have ordered a Coca-Cola.
The question lawyers most frequently ask me about
our sabbatical program is how our partners can possibly
leave our clients for a year. The answer lies chiefly in our
firm's long-standing tradition that we have no personal
clients, only firm clients. Thus , in the natural course of
our practice, whether or not there were a sabbatical
program, most of our clients will have gotten used to
having their problems handled by more than one
lawyer. Well in advance of the lawyer's departure, we
take great care to explain the program to the clients with
whom the lawyer is working and to introduce the new
lawyer who is to substitute for the lawyer on sabbatical.
In general, we have found our clients to be extremely
sympathetic to the program and the modest interruptions in their affairs which it entails.
Moreover, in distributing profits we do not use a
mechanistic formula based on such things as hours
worked or the origin of the client. This means that the
returning lawyer does not suffer any substantial
interruption in professional or financial growth. In my
case, for example, on my return I found myself working
in new, different, and more exciting areas of the law.
Finally, to the fullest extent possible, we work very hard
at deferring until his return any decisions which might
affect the personal situation of a partner absent on
sabbatical.
This is not to say that the sabbatical program is
without costs and problems. There are major costs to
the firm, both financial and personal. Moreover, we
fully expect that sooner or later some partner will decide
that what he did on his sabbatical was more rewarding
to him than his work in the firm. If so, so be it. If we
cannot keep our partners after they have tried
alternative life styles , we don't deserve to continue our
existence.
It is still too early in the program to fully evaluate its
results. Nevertheless, judging solely from the reaction of
the two lawyers who have completed a year away and
from what we hear from the two who are now away, the
program is more than worth the effort and expense the
firm puts into it.
Speaking solely for myself, I returned from our
sabbatical year with more enthusiasm for my work , a
closer relationship to my family , and memories of the
most fascinating year of my life.

Conveuation with ...
Professor
Martha A. Field
Editor's Note: Martha A. Field,
Associate Professor of Law, was
born in Boston, Massachusetts,
received her B.A. degree in 1965
from Radcliffe College, where she
majored in Chinese history, and in
1968 received her J.D. from the
University of Chicago.
She was law clerk to Judge John
Minor Wisdom, United States Court
of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit,
during the summer of 1967 and
served as law clerk to Justice
Abraham Fort as of the United
States Supreme Court for the year
1968-1969.
Professor Field joined the Penn
Law faculty in 1969 and currently
teaches constitutional law, a required first year course, andfederal
jurisdiction, a course given in the
second and third years.
26
Journal: As one who has worked at
various levels of the judicial system,
how would you evaluate the performance of the Burger Court up to this
point?
Field: Rather than any particular
accomplishments or results, the
Court's lack of performance and its
disposition not to develop issues is
most glaring and bothersome to me.
The Justices seem reluctant to go
beyond what was achieved in the
prior court. Some of their opinions
seem as well to reflect a disinterest in
the
reasons
underlying
their
judgments. Often a reasonable decision could be written in support of
their position, but the opinion
handed down is an irresponsible one.
That, to me, is a most distressful
element of the Burger Court.
Journal: However, in the areas of
women's rights, the Court has made
some incredible progress. Can you
comment on and try to explain this?
Field: Yes. That is a very interesting point, for the Burger Court
has been the first to have done
anything on women's matters. The
Warren Court really did nothing in
this area. In fact, they never took a
sex discrimination case, at least not
one resting on an equal protection
rationale.
The present Court took a case for
the first time and has come out with a
rather far-reaching line of sex discrimination rulings. They basically
have said that women cannot be
treated differently from men because
of their sex. There are a few cases
where the Court has not held to its
theory and where no sex discrimination has been found to exist. But the
test the Court often follows to find
sex discrimination would seem to
lead as far as the Equal Rights
Amendment.
It is interesting to speculate why
the Burger Court should be as
sensitive as it is to sex discrimination,
when it is not terribly progressive in
cases
involving
other
discriminations-like racial discrimination
or
discrimination
against the poor-and when it is not
terribly progressive concerning individual liberties generally. Undoubtedly the drive for the Equal
Rights Amendment and the feminist
movement generally have exerted
some pressure on the all-male Court
to recognize some of women's
legitimate concerns. Another reason
may be that feminism is essentially a
middle-class movement at the present time. The Justices may have
personal contacts with people who
feel more strongly in this area than in
some others. Whatever the reason, it
seems that they have absorbed some
sensitivity to the problems facing
women, and they have been made
aware that equality here is a question
of importance and is a legitimate
demand.
By the way, their record in this area
is not consistently good. There are
one or two cases where they have
made some strange decisions; for
example, in one instance they said
that discrimination against pregnant
persons was not discrimination
against women. That logic is rather
incredible. Nevertheless, the bulk of
their cases in the area of women's
rights are as progressive as one could
hope.
Journal: You served on the staff of
the Supreme Court for the year 19681969 as law clerk to Justice Abe
Fortas. Can you outline your experiences? Had you any contact with
Chief Justice Warren?
Field: I began working for Fortas
the day after he had been nominated
to be Chief Justice. We spent the first
summer going through the Congressional hearings concerning that
appointment, and then I worked for
him until May when, after serving his
term as an associate justice, he quit
the Court. It was an extremely
eventful and interesting year.
I like Fortas very much as a
person. He was much like Former
Justice William 0. Douglas in
personality and in his style as a
Justice, yet they had dissimilar public
1mages.
For a few weeks after Fortas's
leavetaking, I did some work for
Chief Justice Warren. Warren, you
will remember, tried to retire in the
spring of 1968, but when the Senate
failed to confirm a successor, he
stayed on for an additional term. He
was very much on top of everything
and was in excellent physical and
mental health to the time of his
retirement, which was what he
wished. Warren never got old on the
job.
What are your retrospective feelings and perceptions of the
Warren Court, having been an "insider"?
Field: One point that Chief Justice
Warren often made, which I thought
quite valid, was that despite the
activist image of the Court, the more
striking fact was how much they left
undone. It is the very significant civil
liberties decisions that they did make
and, particularly, Brown v. Board of
Education that they are remembered
Journal:
for. But there were many other
matters that were terribly important,
in which the Court had an opportunity to render a decision but instead
declined to review the case. As a law
clerk with a one-year perspective on
the job, one often felt frustrated that
this Court, when it was able to right
the American legal system, was not
seizing all opportunities to do so. But
the Court was reticent to step in too
often when the result might be to
antagonize people and ultimately
diminish the Court's prestige and
influence. Sometimes the Justices
simply felt it too early to rule on an
ISSUe.
Journal: Having given intimations,
could you elaborate on what you
might view as the most important
decisions of the Warren Court?
Field: The most powerful decision
would have to be Brown v. Board of
Education and, secondly, the reapportionment cases, which I think are
very important.
Brown v. Board of Education
definitely stands out in a lot of ways,
partly because it is a very important
substantive decision and also because
the Court acted courageously.
Although the Court itself has no real
power to enforce its decrees , it
managed to accomplish a peaceful
Professor Martha J\. Field
27
revolution in American society by
that decision.
The Warren Court, in general, had
an attitude of receptivity to the
complaints of individuals, taking
seriously the concept of individual
liberties and truly attempting to do
right by people. More than any
particular decision, I believe that this
attitude was the most important
attribute of the Warren Court. It
went further in this direction than
had previous courts.
Journal: Is there the danger that
the present Court might cause a
regression from what was accomplished in the Warren Court?
Field: Yes. The Burger Court
probably has, as a result of its
disparity in attitude, caused some
reversals. Fortunately, we cannot
step back all the way once we have
told a people that they have a right to
be equal. The real difference between
the courts narrows down to the
question of how much weight the
Justices will give to individual liberties when these liberties conflict with
the status quo.
Journal: Who are your all-time
heroes on the Court?
Field: When I was with the Court,
John Harlan was the Justice I most
admired and felt had the best
temperament for the job. He changed
and developed a great deal during the
period he was on the Court. It seemed
to me that he was able to do that
because he was extremely conscientious , thoughtful, and intellectually
honest. He also was not too proud to
change his mind on issues and to say
he had been wrong in an earlier
decision. That is a rather rare
attribute for a Supreme Court
Justice. Harlan was also very concerned with what he believed was the
right and proper conduct for a judge.
Justice Thurgood Marshall is a
current member of the Court whom I
admire tremendously. He writes very
28
Professor Marth a II. Field
fine and well-reasoned opinions and
does so probably more consistently
than any other member of the Court.
Journal: Are there any cases coming before the Court where sex might
be found a suspect classification?
Field: It could be found a suspect
classification in any sex discrimination case. At the outset, when the
Court began taking such cases, four
Justices took the position that it was
a suspect classification and wrote
that in a judgment for the Court. The
other justices chose to go the route of
avoiding the issue since the discrimination was considered unconstitutional anyway.
I find it unlikely, were I to guess,
that sex will be considered a suspect
or a nonsuspect classification,
because the Court seems to be
slipping away from that kind of equal
protection analysis. Instead of
deciding
whether
particular
classifications should be called
"suspect" and having the result of
equal protection litigation turn on
that finding, the Court seems to be
moving towards judging each alleged
discrimination according to all the
considerations involved. I happen to
think that this is a better way of
analyzing equal protection issues.
Should the Equal Rights Amendment be passed , however, the effect
would automatically be the same as if
sex were considered a suspect
classification . The Court also might
accomplish these same results under
the Equal Protection Clause without
having to decide whether sex is a
suspect classification.
Journal: There has already been
some litigation in the areas of social
security and employment with relation to sex discrimination. What
might be concentrated on in the
future?
Field: Every place where women
are treated differently from men by
the state is a potential area to be
tested. Once people start accepting as
constitutional principle the thinking
of the Supreme Court that women
cannot be treated differently from
men because of sex, then the only
question will be how much litigation
is necessary. If states and legislators
begin acting on that principle, then
state law ought to reflect it without
the Supreme Court having to decide
every issue. The same thing happened
when, in Brown v. Board of Education, the Court said "separate but
equal is inherently unequal." The
principle came to be accepted for
racial segregation generally so that it
was unnecessary for the Supreme
Court to decide the issue separately
for every school or golf course or
swimming pool.
Journal: Have you worked actively
for any feminist organizations?
Field: No. I am sympathetic with
the
aims
of many feminist
organizations, but I haven't found
the time to involve myself more
actively.
I taught a course once on women's
rights and would like to teach it again
sometime. It is fun to do every now
and then, although it is not my
specialty. Of course, Barbara Brown
does such a fine job of teaching the
course that I would not want to do it
if she could. I do a great deal in my
constitutional law course in the area
of equal protection and deal with sex
discrimination issues in that context.
Journal: How much of a feminist
are you?
Field: I have become much more of
a feminist during my seven years here
at Penn. Before, I had no particular
feelings of having experienced discrimination personally, and I did not
appreciate what people were talking
about concerning such issues. I came
from a family where there were no
differences in career aspirations as
far as the girls and boy were concerned. The teachers at the school which I
attended - an all-girl school, by the
way- did not seem to be sexist in
their ambitions for the students.
Now, being closely involved with
male organizations, I am much more
conscious of the discriminations
against women. For one example,
women applicants for jobs are
subjected to all sorts of different
attitudes than men, especially if men
are doing the hiring. And I am also
much more conscious of the discriminations against women that
permeate our attitudes and our
lifestyles- things that I simply
accepted without questioning before.
Journal: Having said this, how do
you feel as the only woman on the
Penn Law faculty?
Field: I have no complaints myself.
There is very little conscious discrimination on this faculty against
women; yet there is no escaping
attitudes which have been formed
way back.
Journal: Phyllis Beck has become
the Law School's new Vice-Dean.
Are there possibilities that you might
be joined in the future by other
women faculty members?
Field: As a matter of fact, I will
definitely be joined by another
woman, Regina Austin, starting in
September, 1977. She was graduated
from this Law School a .few years ago
and
now practices with the
Philadelphia firm of Schnader,
Harrison, Segal and Lewis.
Hopefully, there will be many
joining us. When we get to about 50
percent of the faculty, we will be in
the right place.
Journal: You came to Penn Law
School in 1969- a time when it was
beginning to be fashionable to hire
young women teachers. Can you
recall the attitudes of your students
and contrast them to present reactions?
Field: The students generally seem
to accept a woman professor like any
other professor, and this has been
true of the students since I started
teaching here. That does not fit in
with the stereotype that women
teachers do not have the capability to
"handle" a large classroom situation.
Women may fear this about
themselves as well, but, in fact, I
don't think it proves to be a problem.
Some people may respond differently
because I am a woman teacher.
Women often react positively; some
males may feel threatened. For most,
though, I don't think there's much of
a difference.
Even when I was pregnant and
teaching this year in the constitutional law course, where we
discuss many issues having to do with
rights of privacy, having children,
contraception, abortion, etc., there
really was no problem and, I think,
very little embarassment. Law
students, after all, are a fairly mature
and sophisticated group of people.
Journal: It is the opinion of some
feminists that childbearing and rearing is not the fulfilling experience it is
reputed to be. You are the mother of
two really terrific children. Having
chosen motherhood, in the light of
your experiences can you comment
on this?
Field: The label "feminism" really
covers many different points of view
by many different people. I guess
some believe women should not have
children. For my part, I certainly
don't think it's necessary in order for
a woman to fulfill herself as a person.
But for some people having children
is a really nice thing, and it has been
for me. It's funny , I had no interest at
all in having children until I was in
my late twenties and then , suddenly, I
realized it was something I very much
wanted to do . It's a very timeconsuming and sometimes energydraining thing, but I have no regrets
at all about it. There is no way I
would rather spend my time.
Journal: Your undergraduate major at Radcliffe was in the area of
Chinese history. How did you make
the decision to attend law school?
Field: Paul Freund taught a course,
"Social Sciences 137; The Legal
Process," which was described as an
introduction to the legal process for
people who do not intend to become
lawyers or attend Jaw school. I took
the course qualifying under that
description and , like most everyone
who took it, decided afterwards that
it might be fun to go to law school. It
was a fun course, familiarizing us
with both the socratic and case
methods. I got to thinking that I liked
the intellectual process that legal
training entailed .
My Chinese studies had gotten to
the point where, to go any further, I
would have to have gone to Taiwan
for a year in order to become more
comfortable with the language.
Going to mainland China was not an
option at the time. I had taken the
equivalent of five years of Chinese at
the college level but still was not as
fluent in the language as I needed to
be to do serious original work. Going
to Taiwan did not fit in with my life at
the time so I went to Jaw school.
If I had it to do over again, I would
not have spent my time in college
learning a language. But studying the
history of China and its cultural
differences was a very valuable
experience, and I'm glad I did it.
Journal: Have you read any good
books lately?
Field: Not counting the child-care
books, I have just completed Doris
Lessing's The Summer Before the
Dark, and an autobiographical novel
by Mark Yonnegut, Kurt Vonnegut's
son, called Eden Express. That was a
really nice book, and I enjoyed
reading it very much. Jane Lazarre's
The Mother Knot is another important and provocative book that I
recently read.

The Lawyer and The Forensic Psychiatrist
by Robert A. Rosin, L'61
I would like to recommend a book for consideration
as a standard component to a litigation library.
Forensic Psychiatry-A Practical Guide for Lawyers
and Psychiatrists- was written by Robert L. Sadoff,
M.D . and is one of the American Lecture Series in
Behavioral Sciences and Law. The book is a clearly
outlined , well-developed directive to forensic psychiatry, a relatively new branch of medicine which deals
with mental and emotional illness as related to legal
matters.
Separated into four topical sections with each divided
into subject chapters, the book enables the reader to
select and review areas of special need with ease. Further
information at the close of each chapter and an
extensive glossary make Forensic Psychiatry an
invaluable reference source.
Section I entitled "Psychiatry and the Lawyer,"
examines the relationship between lawyer and forensic
psychiatrist, advising the lawyer of the availability of
psychiatric services and offering techniques helpful in
obtaining such assistance. Sadoff warns that psychiatrists are not investigators or detectives and must be
given extensive information; they, on the other hand,
must make perceptive and probing inquiries of the
lawyer.
Sections II and III deal with criminal law and civil law
respectively. I found the highlight of Section II to be in
Chapter 9, " The Psychiatrist and Dangerousness:
Predicting Violent Behavior." Although the psychiatrist
specializing in forensic medicine possesses that special
talent and training to best prognosticate the behavior of
criminals or those mentally ill with dangerous propensities, Dr. Sadoff emphasizes that prediction is limited
and can be precarious.
Chapter 15 of Secion III, "The Psychiatrist and Civil
Law," deals with psychiatric assistance in domestic
relations matters. With understatement, Sadoff
observes that these cases raise many challenges to the
consulting physician. In my opinion, the area of
domestic relations is most complex, replete with multi-
30
-
FORENSIC
PSYCHIATRY
intersecting personalities, emotions, needs, stresses, and
neuroses. The more complex the situation, the more
valuable the forensic psychiatrist, with his ability to aid
in unraveling the interrelations between embattled
husbands and wives, who are often fathers and mothers
as well. The dealings with one psychotic murderer might
seem like child's play if the psychiatrist's goal is to
untangle emotional problems in the realm of domestic
relations.
Section IV, "The Law and the Psychiatrist,"
enumerates the psychiatrist's legal problems related to
confidentiality and privilege. While these areas are
thought to be traditionally understood , what does the
psychiatrist do in group therapy situations when a
disclosure for treatment purposes is made in the
presence of a dozen patients? Is there still confidentiality
or privilege?
I would like to mention that Robert L. Sadoff, M.D.,
is Associate Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at the
University of Pennsylvania Medical School. When a
respected opinion is sought, Dr. Sadoff is often called as
a "friend of the Court," undoubtedly because of his
reputation as one of the forerunners today in the field of
forensic psychiatry in the United States.

quality.

Tort Exhibit
Torts cases cry for artists. As when, loud,
The train departs, the fireworks explode, crowd
Stampede ensues, the scale fells a woman:'
A van Gogh painting, wild, mad, and human.
Rubens would love the lavish curves, the lush
Two hundred fifty pounds of pulchritude
Tumbled down stairs, across the platform, rushing down the slope beyond .2 A forest, viewed
By Currier and Ives: men on a rise,
A quail flies, a shot is aimed in error,
And one proud hunter shouts-he's lost his eyes.3
What scenes! Falls, shots, explosions, blows, terror!
I read each case, I see each scene unwind
In garish colors, painted on my mind.
