Edward D. Ohlbaum received his J.D. in 1976 from Temple University, the institution to which he would devote much of his career. But before his time at the Law School, he worked for the Defender Association of Philadelphia, representing people who could not afford an attorney. There, Eddie tried nearly 75 jury trials, handling the Office’s most complex and difficult cases and trained generations of young lawyers. After his career in the courtroom, Eddie spent nearly 30 years on the Temple law faculty and conceived, built, and sustained a trial advocacy program that is the model for programs nationally and produced decades of championship trial competition teams. He was also an Evidence law scholar, publishing articles and the authoritative OHLBAUM ON PENNSYLVANIA RULES OF EVIDENCE, and training judges across the United States and internationally. And Eddie never left the courtroom, volunteering with the Pennsylvania Innocence Project and the Board of the Support Center for Child Advocates. Most importantly, there are generations of lawyers who, as Temple students or working professionals, learned the art, science and ethics of advocacy from Eddie Ohlbaum.
