Judge Gerald "Jerry" McHugh will give the keynote address at the Second Annual Carl "Tobey" Oxholm III Public Interest Colloquium.
Judge McHugh was appointed to the bench in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania by President Barack Obama in May, 2014. During 33 years of practice, the judge focused on complex civil litigation, including aviation, product liability, medical malpractice, and civil rights. Judge McHugh is a fellow of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers and a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers. As a lawyer, he was listed in the directory Best Lawyers in America in multiple practice areas, and was named its 2011 Lawyer of the Year for medical malpractice in Philadelphia, for personal injury in 2013, and product liability in 2014. In every year he practiced, he was ranked as one of the Top Ten lawyers statewide in Pennsylvania’s annual Super Lawyers survey.
The annual symposium celebrates the public interest program supported through a gift by former Drexel Senior Vice President and General Counsel Tobey Oxholm that underwrites student fellowships in the Philadelphia City Solicitor's Office. A reception will follow Judge McHugh's remarks.
