Temple University Names Scholarship After Munley Law Founder Robert W. Munley

Temple Scholarship CeremonyMunley Law Personal Injury Attorneys is proud to announce that Temple University Beasley School of Law has recently created a scholarship named for truck accident lawyer and Munley Law founder Robert W. Munley and his wife Bernadine Munley.

Robert W. Munley (1930-2019) graduated from the Beasley School of Law after serving in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. During his time at Temple, he was a member of the Temple Law Review. Bernadine Munley, as well as partners Marion Munley and Caroline Munley, also graduated from Temple.

The scholarship fund will benefit students in the trial advocacy program with a preference for those students who come from Lackawanna County or are members of the Women’s Law Caucus.

“On behalf of the Beasley School of Law, it is an honor to name a scholarship for one of the true pioneers in personal injury,” said Rachel Rebouche, Dean of the Beasley School of Law. “Both Robert and Bernadine Munley have built Munley Law in the Temple Law tradition and have shown their devotion to advocating and providing access to the civil justice system for all.”

During his lifetime, personal injury lawyer Robert Munley had helped thousands of injury victims with their car accident, truck accident, and product liability claims. After opening Munley Law in 1959, Robert had blazed new trails in emerging liability theories and trial techniques. He recovered seven- and eight-figure verdicts and settlements for injury victims during a time when verdicts of this size were not a common occurrence. The trial lawyers trade organization American Association for Justice’s renowned Trucking Litigation Group renamed its annual award after Robert.

He was recognized for his work in truck accident law by prestigious legal publications. He had been listed in the Best Lawyers in America since 1993 and was one of the first personal injury lawyers in the U.S. to earn board certification from the National Board of Trial Advocacy. He was also a Fellow of both the American Board of Trial Advocates and the International Society of Barristers.

Robert was also committed to helping his community. He had endowed scholarships for students pursuing careers in law at the University of Scranton, Marywood University, and Landmark College. He was a supporter of the Lackawanna Pro Bono, the Friends of the Poor, and many other charities.
