The George E. Allen Chair in Law was established with the initial gifts of his sons, the late George E. Allen, Jr. L'36, Ashby B. Allen R' 43, and Wilbur C. Allen. Their continuing support along with the contributions of others accounted for the Chair becoming fully endowed in 1988. This year the Allen Chair scholars teamed with Professor Okianer Christian Dark in teaching an advanced course, Selected Topics in Tort Law. The course examines four significant areas: Mass Tort Suits and the Tort System: Moods, Methods, and Roles in Tort Law Making; Dignitary Torts; and The Future of Tort Law.
