Special WWN Tea & CLE in Harrisburg
Ashley Barton - Published: April 13, 2012
The Harrisburg Chapter of the Widener Women’s Network met for a meaningful Tea & CLE on April 12, 2012. The event incorporated tea and light hors d’oeuvres prior to a one-hour substantive CLE program. As part of the registration fee, all attendees made a contribution to the Pamela K. Karpouzis Memorial Scholarship, a fund which supports a female student.

Dean Linda L. Ammons welcomed alumnae and faculty and thanked them for supporting other women in the legal profession as she explained that she, too, was the recipient of a scholarship funded by a woman. After the Dean’s welcome, Prof. Jennifer Lear presented a CLE, “Made ya Look: Using detail to persuade.” She focused on demonstrating the power of detail in legal writing noting that, among other things, detail should be used to pop an image into the reader’s mind and that each concrete detail nails down an argument.

Alumnae from both the Delaware and Harrisburg campuses who live in Central Pennsylvania gathered for this event on the Harrisburg campus to show their support of a special fund. The Pamela K. Karpouzis Memorial Scholarship was established in memory of a fellow alumna in 1998. Pamela, a Lancaster native and graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, was a member of one of the earliest classes on Widener University School of Law’s Harrisburg campus. Shortly after her law school graduation in 1993, Pamela passed away. Each year, her memory lives on through this scholarship which is presented to a 1L woman on the Harrisburg campus who has entered through the TAP program.

By making a contribution to the Pamela K. Karpouzis Memorial Scholarship through attending the WWN Tea & CLE, these women helped make a difference in the life of one of your future female colleagues in the spirit of another.
