Leonard D. Fromm Office for Student Affairs dedication
4 p.m. in the DeLaney Moot Court Room
Join the Indiana Law community for the dedication of the Fromm Office for Student Affairs, named in memory of Leonard (Len) D. Fromm. Fromm joined the Law School in 1979 as director of student affairs, and, from the beginning, was a strong and effective advocate for students within the school’s administration. Just as important, he served the students as a thoughtful, empathetic, and deeply trusted counselor. He knew every student at the school. During his 33 years at the Law School, Len interacted with nearly 6,000 students, helping them discover their potential and grow as professionals and as people. He stayed in touch with a staggering number of them after graduation and often became the strongest personal link between alumni and the Law School. Sadly, Len passed away in 2013 and we hope you can join us in honoring his memory as we dedicate the space where Len made such an impact on so many. Speakers will include Interim Dean Christiana Ochoa, SBA President Alexa Rojas ’23, and Professors Mark Need JD/MBA ’92 and Aviva Orenstein.
