Hal Bloomenthal Memorial Scholarship
Hal had a long, varied and distinguished career in law. After graduating with a B.S. degree from Marshall University, Hal served in the U.S. Army Air Force in World War II. Following his military service, Hal received a J.D. degree from Duke Law School and a J.S.D. degree from Yale Law School. He commenced his law career as an enforcement attorney in the Denver Regional Office of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Hal most recently served as counsel to the Denver firm of Holme Roberts & Owen, L.L.P. and as Adjunct Professor of Law at the University of Denver College of Law. He also taught securities law as a member of the faculty at the Wyoming College of Law and Northwestern School of Law of Lewis and Clark College.
Bloomenthal worked tirelessly, friends and family said, practicing corporate and securities law, teaching securities law for 20 years at the University of Wyoming and writing some of the best-known works on the subject.
He loved to teach, and his aim was “the transmission of knowledge,” not to be a tough professor, said his son John Bloomenthal of Durham, N.C.
Hal will be remembered fondly by his family and countless students, colleagues, and friends.
