Denny Shupe Spoke at University of Pennsylvania Law School in Honor of Veterans’ Day

On November 11, 2014 by Schnader

Schnader is pleased to announce that retired Air Force command pilot Denny Shupe was part of the University of Pennsylvania Law School’s Veterans’ Day commemoration on Tuesday, November 11, 2014. Denny is a 1989 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Law School.

 

Both law school and military service require considerable dedication and persistence, which challenges one at every turn. Denny spoke to an audience of university faculty, staff, students, and student veterans about his experiences as a veteran in law school. Through his real-life anecdotes, audience members learned the challenges and rewards of uniting a military background with a future in law, and how those experiences can shape a legal practice.

 

Denny also discussed how he remains connected to the military community today, and how he has been able to use his legal knowledge to support other veterans – thanks to the challenges, opportunities and relationships which were forged and strengthened through his military service.

 

Since graduating from Penn Law, Denny has been involved with numerous military organizations as a board member and volunteer, including the Home Port Alliance for the USS New Jersey, Inc., the United Service Organizations (USO) (both locally and nationally), Army/Navy Host Committee, and the Philadelphia Vietnam Veterans Memorial Steering Committee.  His legal practice concentrates on risk management and representation of international, national, and regional companies in a wide variety of commercial, product liability, and business litigation matters. He regularly represents domestic and global aircraft, engine and aircraft component manufacturers, airports, airlines, insurers, Part 135 operators, and Part 145 repair stations in diverse aviation matters.
