Shelley Green, University General Counsel
Shelley Z. Green, Esq., University General Counsel since 1982, is stepping down from her post at the end of December, but will continue in a consulting role for the University.
She announced her decision in a letter sent to colleagues last week, saying,
Ms. Green is a 1970 alumna of Vas-sar College who did graduate work at the New School for Social Research before taking her J.D. at Harvard in 1974. After four years as an associate with the Washington, D.C., firm of Sutherland, Asbill and Brennan, she spent a year at the Office of Legal Counsel of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, 1978-79.
She joined Penn in 1979 as assistant general counsel and became associate general counsel a year later.
"During nearly two decades at Penn, Shelley has counseled the University wisely and well," said President Judith Rodin. "I offer deep appreciation for her long and valued service and great respect for her work. I am delighted that she has agreed to continue her counsel to Penn as a senior advisor."
Added Peter Erichsen, Vice President and General Counsel, "Shelley will be greatly missed. She is a tremendous lawyer who has provided 19 years of dedicated and energetic service to the University. She has been unstinting in her willingness to share with me her deeply felt and thoughtful views about the University and about the work of the office she has led for so many years. I know that she will enjoy great success in the future. I am very pleased that she has agreed to be available to the University in the months to come."
