    Join Freeman for Homecoming 2012 
Chef Brian LandryHomecoming 2012 kicks off tomorrow, and as part of those festivities, the Freeman School is sponsoring a number of events to welcome our business alumni back to campus. Tomorrow afternoon (Friday, Nov. 2), Freeman will host an Open House, Tour and Q&A with Dean Ira Solomon from 4 – 5 p.m. in Goldring/Woldenberg Hall II. If you haven’t visited campus recently, it’s a great chance to catch up and learn about some of the exciting things going on. Then, on Saturday (Nov. 3), join us for tailgating in Champions Square at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome prior to the Tulane-Rice football game. This year’s special guest will be Chef Brian Landry (above) of Borgne, the newest member of the John Besh Restaurant Group, who will be serving his acclaimed Louisiana cuisine in the Freeman School tent from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. For more information about these and other homecoming activities, visit or contact Rhonda Brown at or (504) 862-8470.

This summer, the Freeman School acquired 12 new subscriptions to the service, enabling the creation of a new computer lab dedicated exclusively to Bloomberg. The facility, located on the first floor of Goldring/Woldenberg Hall I, provides students with 24-hour access to real-time and historical data on commodities, derivatives, equities, fixed income and foreign exchange securities.


    Attorney Ira Sorkin visits Freeman
Ira SorkinAttorney Ira Sorkin (A&S ’65), best known for representing notorious Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff, took some time from his busy schedule to speak to Prof. Mike Hogg’s undergraduate business law class on Oct. 16. Sorkin attended Tulane on a track and field scholarship and majored in English, but it was a political science course on the Supreme Court that inspired him to pursue a legal career. Sorkin spent three years as a trial attorney with the Securities & Exchange Commission in New York and five years with the U.S. Attorney’s office in New York, serving as Assistant U.S. Attorney and Deputy Chief of the Criminal Division, where he prosecuted federal violations ranging from from organized crime to securities fraud. Today, Sorkin is a member of Lowenstein Sandler, a New Jersey-based law firm, where he specializes in white collar defense.
