February 8, 2018, Fellows in the news

Tamar Frankel, Massachusetts Life Fellow, has been appointed to the Robert B. Kent chaired professorship. The professorship was established with a gift from Richard Godfrey (’79), partner at Kirkland & Ellis and chair of the BU Law Building on Excellence Campaign. It was created to “recognize the strength of the law school, which is its faculty,” Godfrey said in a 2007 interview in The Record. Its namesake, Professor Robert B. Kent (’49), taught civil procedure at BU Law for more than 30 years, and was honored with a Silver Shingle Award for service to the school. A prominent scholar of fiduciary law, with more than 50 years of service to the school, Frankel will retire at the end of the 2017–2018 academic year.
