About the Author
In 1956 Norman Weiss was given permission from Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Macdonald to substitute legal education by studying on a clerkship basis in a local legal office. The office of Rosenn, Jenkins, & Greenwald offered to do the job. Weiss had completed approximately 2 years of night school training at Loyola Law School of Los Angeles while he was stationed as a Captain in the US Army at Fort MacArthur in San Pedro. Since he had become a paratrooper after graduating from West Point and had no troops to command at that moment, he was assigned with 3 others to Caven Point, New Jersey to learn how to run an oil depot. His duties were basically clerical and he was allowed to leave the post each evening. This made it possible for him to enroll in law school. He eventually knew that the practice of law would educate him in certain business fields, and he decided to apply it in the real estate business. He is now living permanently in Florida, his native state. His education was in the northern part of the country, but he still has relatives in Florida.
