T. Terrell Sessums and Gerald Sohn Professorship in Constitutional Law
Upon termination of the T. Terrell Sessums Charitable Remainder Unitrust, all funds housed in the Gerald Sohn Term Professorship Fund at Levin College of Law shall be combined with the proceeds from the Sessums Trust and used to endow the T. Terrell Sessums and Gerald Sohn Professorship in Constitutional Law going forward.
Gerald Sohn earned a bachelor’s degree in 1952 and a law degree in 1955 from the University of Florida. A Jacksonville native who joined the Navy after receiving his law degree, he returned to Jacksonville to practice law and open his own private practice there, specializing in negligence, personal injury and wrongful death law. He and his wife, Phyllis, who is a 1962 graduate of UF, have two sons.
His gift reflects his gratitude toward his alma mater. Sohn was inspired to make the gift by his colleague T. Terrell Sessums who had helped established a professorship in constitutional law.
