Larry "the Dude" Frolik, inventor of Elder Law, receives Chancellor's Distinguished Service Award

Larry Larry Frolik (Pitt) recently received the Chancellor's Distinguished Service Award at the Univeristy of Pittsburgh.  Frolik, the co-author of an elder law casebook that is much more widely used than my own, was characteristically humble about the award, stating:  "As faculty members in a professional school, we have the obligation to train students for the profession...Teaching law can be very theoretical, but then you see the application of the law to older people, and people with disabilities, and the law can become very rewarding and stimulating.  It's very gratifying work."

Congratulations, Larry.  For the full article, visit http://www.cejp.org/larry.pdf
