Law gets grant to underwrite centennial history of school

Pitt's School of Law has received a $50,000 grant from the Obernauer Foundation to underwrite publication of the school's centennial history. "The Law-Down: A Century Remembered"was written by W. Edward Sell, dean emeritus of the school, distinguished professor emeritus and Pitt's longest-serving tenured professor. "This is philanthropy at its most creative," law school Dean Peter Shane said. "The Obernauer Foundation grant will not only support a key project of the school's centennial celebration, but will enhance our ability to generate revenue through book sales." The Obernauer Foundation is named after Harold Obernauer, a founding member of the Pitt Law School Alumni Association. The foundation also created and sustains the Harold Obernauer Computerized Legal Research Center.

Copies of "The Law-Down" are available through the school's Alumni Association. The cost is $30, plus $3 shipping and handling.

Proceeds from the history will finance scholarships. Orders can be placed by contacting the Alumni Office, Room 226-A, Pitt Law School.
