 LOS ANGELES, Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Unocal Corp. (NYSE: UCL)


today said the company's board of directors elected Dennis P. Codon, 44, as vice president, general counsel and chief legal officer, effective Dec. 1.
 Codon succeeds Sam A. Snyder, 62, who is retiring after more than 37 years with the company.
 Codon will continue as Unocal's corporate secretary, a position he has held since 1990. He joined the company in 1974 as a retail marketing representative. He became an administrative assistant to the general counsel of the Chemicals Division in 1975, and later served as an attorney for the division after completing his law degree.
 He transferred to Unocal's law department in 1979, and was appointed deputy general counsel in 1989.
 Born in Los Angeles, Codon holds a bachelor's degree in political science from Brigham Young University and a juris doctor degree from Southwestern University School of Law.
 He is a member of the American, California and Los Angeles County Bar Associations, and serves on the advisory committee of the American Society of Corporate Secretaries.
 Snyder joined Unocal in 1955 as a landman in Midland, Texas. He joined the company's law department as an attorney in 1960, and was promoted to assistant counsel in 1969. He became assistant general counsel in 1973, and was named vice president and general counsel in 1985.
 Snyder served as legal counsel in 1967 for the joint venture exploration agreement in the Netherlands and in 1970 drew up the legal documents for the highly successful production sharing agreement in Indonesia. In 1985, Snyder led the company's legal team in the successful defense against a hostile takeover attempt.
 Snyder studied pre-law at Concord College and received a LL.B. degree from Southern Methodist University. He is a member of the state bar in California and Texas, the American Society of International Law, and the Society of Mining Law Anti Quarians.
