Trial Lawyer Gives Drexel Law $50 Million

Drexel University’s law school is now the Thomas R. Kline School of Law, thanks to a generous $50 million gift from prominent trial lawyer Thomas R. Kline.

 Kline is one of the city's - and nation's - most prominent trial lawyers. He represented one of the victims in the Penn State University sexual-abuse cases, and became a national spokesman for others with claims against the university. He cofounded the firm of Kline & Specter P.C. in 1995 with his partner Shanin Specter, the son of the late Arlen Specter, a longtime U.S. Senator representing Pennsylvania.

Since then the firm has reached the upper ranks of law firms handling catastrophic personal-injury cases. On its website, it lists awards and settlements on behalf of clients of more than $1.7 billion, noting at the same time that the results of many other resolved cases could not be reported under terms of confidentiality agreements.
