On Thursday, April 18th, the Law and Government Institute
will welcome James D. Schultz ‘98, the General Counsel of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, who will speak to students on the Harrisburg campus at noon in room L205 about the Office of General Counsel.
Schultz was appointed in July of 2012 by Governor Tom Corbett, who said at the time, “Jim has a tremendous record of service and success in my administration, in his community and in the legal world. His experience and guidance are valuable assets to our team, and his talents will suit him well as General Counsel.”
Schultz graduated from Temple University and earned his J.D. from Widener Law’s Harrisburg campus in 1998. Prior to his appointment as General Counsel, Schultz served as the First Executive Deputy General Counsel, overseeing the operation and management of the Office of General Counsel's executive office and the chief counsel offices of commonwealth agencies. He has also practiced complex litigation with Cozen O’Connor in Philadelphia and served as an aide in the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
Students on the Harrisburg campus are encouraged to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to hear from a distinguished alumnus.
