Memorial Service for Professor David Kohler to be held at Southwestern

Family and friends of Professor David C. Kohler will gather at the Southwestern campus for a special Memorial Tribute and Reception to celebrate his life on Friday, January 15, 2010 at 10:00 a.m.

After a long and distinguished career as an attorney and corporate executive including a decade with TBS and CNN where he was Senior Vice President and General Counsel, Professor Kohler was appointed in 2003 as Director of the Donald E. Biederman Entertainment and Media Law Institute at Southwestern, where he contributed significantly to the expansion of Southwestern's entertainment and media law offerings into what is likely the most comprehensive curricula in this area of any law school in the country. He passed away on October 15 at the age of 56 after a long battle with cancer.

Members of the community who RSVP in advance are welcome to attend. In lieu of flowers, Professor Kohler's family has suggested that any donations made in his memory be directed to Southwestern's Biederman Institute (donations may be made online).

For further information or to RSVP, contact Southwestern's Institutional Advancement Office at (213) 738-6814 or advancement@swlaw.edu. More information on Professor Kohler is available online.
