Widener Law held its biggest alumni event of the year on Wednesday, March 28 at Vie in Philadelphia. The reception celebrated the accomplishments of alumnus John Savoth ’85, the new chancellor of the Philadelphia Bar Association, as well as recently elected alumni judges. It brings together graduates of the law school’s campuses in Harrisburg, Pa. and Wilmington, Del. for an evening of networking and socializing. More than 200 alumni, judges, students, faculty, and staff were in attendance. The event featured gourmet hors d’oeuvres, open bar, a silent auction, music and complimentary valet parking.

“This reception is a great way for our graduates to mix and mingle with one another and with members of the bench and bar.” said Law Dean Linda L. Ammons. “I was so glad to see such a wonderful turn out for our annual alumni event” said Renae Axelrod, President of the Alumni Association, “this year was a real tribute to our recently elected alumni judge’s, John Savoth, and all of our distinguished Widener Law Alumni!”
