Wylie Aitken Honored by Chapman University as Chair Emeritus
December 22, 2020
For more than 20 years, Wylie Aitken and his wife, Bette, have been supporting Chapman University, including Wylie serving on the Board of Trustees since 2004 and serving as Board Chair for the past four years, having fulfilled his term and completed his leadership.
In honor of his exemplary service and commitment to the school, Chapman University has awarded Wylie the title of Chair Emeritus.
Beyond serving on the Board, he was a key figure in supporting the founding of Chapman’s School of Law and the Wylie Aitken Trial Courtroom, which is a state-of-the-art national courtroom, oversaw the construction of the Keck Center for Science and Engineering, and led the university to accomplish countless academic achievements, including being recognized as a National University in the “U.S. News and World Report.”
Additionally, he along with his wife, Bette, saw the philanthropic establishments of the Bette and Wylie Aitken Family Protection Clinic, the Center for Lawyering and Advocacy Skills, and the Bette and Wylie Aitken Arts Plaza at the university.
Per the thoughtful letter from Chapman University President Daniele C. Struppa to Wylie, the school and all members of the Chapman Family honored and celebrated the service and dedication of Wylie.
Congratulations on the well-earned and deserved recognition, Wylie. We at the firm are excited that he will continue to represent individuals and corporations who are victimized by insurance companies and unfair business practices of their competitors.
