Notable Temple Law Alumni
« on: April 26, 2007, 11:35:46 AM »
Does anyone have a good list of Temple Law alumni in prominent or impressive positions?

I'm thinking of elected government positions, or important or interesting appointed positions, or high ranking agency officials (federal, state or local), or corporate executives, or equity partners in major law firms, or judges at various levels. But, there may be other notable alumni in other fields/positions too.

Here's my own list of current Pennsylvania state legislature members:

Pennsylvania State Senate

Patrick M. Browne '93 (R) Senate District 16

Vincent J. Fumo (D) '72 Senate District 1

John C. Rafferty Jr. '88 (R)  Senate District 44

Pennsylvania House of Representatives

Kathy Manderino '89 (Democrat)
Montgomery County (Part)
Philadelphia County (Part)

Bryan R. Lentz '93 (Democrat)
Delaware County (Part)

Sad, but true...  Could be worse--at least Alberto Gonzalez isn't a Temple alum. Larry was caught messing with one person, not a whole prosecutorial system. :)
