Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law professor emeritus Harold Greenberg died Tuesday. Family funeral services were to take place Friday, and a memorial celebration will be scheduled later.

“The McKinney School of Law is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Harold Greenberg,” McKinney Dean Andrew R. Klein said in a statement. “We remember him as a wonderful friend, a great teacher, and someone who cared deeply about the school and its students. I know he will be missed by everyone in our community who had the good fortune of being his colleague.”

Greenberg taught at McKinney from 1977 until 2011 after 12 years as an associate and partner in the litigation department of a Philadelphia law firm, according to his IU McKinney School of Law biography. He also was a law clerk to former Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Samuel J. Roberts.

Active in professional and community organizations, Greenberg served on the executive committee of the Sports and Entertainment Law Section of the Indianapolis Bar Association and produced numerous plays for Footlite Musicals, where he served on the board of directors.

According to his obituary, Greenberg also was the director of the International Law program in Lille, France, for several summers and was a visiting professor of law in Chicago and Jacksonville, Fla.

    Professor Greenburg was one of the best instructors I had in law school. He was a great teacher and I looked forward to his classes. He left his mark on this world.

  1. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  2. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.

  3. This article is excellent and should be required reading for all attorneys and would-be attorneys, regardless of age or experience. I've caught myself committing several of the errors mentioned.

  4. Bill Satterlee is, indeed, a true jazz aficionado. Part of my legal career was spent as an associate attorney with Hoeppner, Wagner & Evans in Valparaiso. Bill was instrumental (no pun intended) in introducing me to jazz music, thereby fostering my love for this genre. We would, occasionally, travel to Chicago on weekends and sit in on some outstanding jazz sessions at Andy's on Hubbard Street. Had it not been for Bill's love of jazz music, I never would have had the good fortune of hearing it played live at Andy's. And, most likely, I might never have begun listening to it as much as I do. Thanks, Bill.

  5. The child support award is many times what the custodial parent earns, and exceeds the actual costs of providing for the children's needs. My fiance and I have agreed that if we divorce, that the children will be provided for using a shared checking account like this one(http://www.mediate.com/articles/if_they_can_do_parenting_plans.cfm) to avoid the hidden alimony in Indiana's child support guidelines.
