The new director of Temple University Beasley School of Law's graduate tax program comes from private practice where she has been a member of Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis' estates department since 1983. Associate Professor Kathy C. Mandelbaum, who has been an adjunct member of the faculty since 1995, now joins the full-time faculty to meet the expanding interest in tax law.

In her capacity as director of the graduate tax program, Mandelbaum will oversee students seeking degrees through the LL.M. in Taxation program, as well as the J.D./LL.M. in Taxation, the Estate Planning Certificate program, and the newly introduced Certificate in Employee Benefits. In addition to heading that program, Mandelbaum will teach courses in estate and gift taxation, and the law of non-profit organizations.

Mandelbaum has been active in her chosen area of law--estates--ever since graduating from law school in 1983. She has lectured frequently on estate planning and charitable giving topics for a variety of organizations including the Pennsylvania Bar Institute, the Philadelphia Bar Association, the YWCAs of America, the National Society of Fund Raising Executives, the Alzheimer's Association, and the Health Ed Network.

Active in civic activities, Mandelbaum was recently reelected to the board of directors of the Greater Philadelphia chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, and has authored numerous articles on planning topics for the chapter's publications. She has also served as a member of the executive board of the Harvard Radcliffe Club of Philadelphia.
