Marshall 0001Temple Law School has lost one of its own with the passing of Professor Emeritus Joe Marshall '53, a legendary tax professor who served the law school from 1960 to his retirement in 1996.  

In addition to teaching taxation to generations of Temple lawyers, Professor Marshall developed the Graduate Tax program and served as its director from 1970-1984.  During that time, he also served twice as acting Dean (1970-1971 and again in spring 1980) and directed the Graduate Legal Studies Division as well as the summer sessions in Athens and Rome.  Professor Marshall also served as the Temple University faculty representative to the NCAA.
