A fitting tribute

Michael Greenfield, J.D., the George Alexander Madill Professor of Contracts and Commercial Law, and his wife, Claire Halpern, cut the ribbon during the dedication of the Greenfield Classroom in Seigle Hall Oct. 8. The new classroom — the first in the School of Law named for a current faculty member — is a tribute to Greenfield’s tireless work with other faculty, students, administrators, alumni, architects and contractors to ensure that the law school’s physical facilities are among the very best in the country. “Mike Greenfield has given 40 years of priceless sweat equity into this law school, as a teacher and scholar as well as a member of at least three building committees,” said Kent Syverud, J.D., dean of the law school and the Ethan A.H. Shepley University Professor. “The classroom in Seigle Hall is a particularly fitting recognition of his selfless service to our school.”
