We discuss the lepton sector of a realistic string-inspired model based on the Pati-Salam SU(4)× SU(2)_L × SU(2)_R gauge group supplemented by a U(1) family symmetry. The model involves third family Yukawa unification, predicts large tanβ∼ 50, and describes all fermion masses and mixing angles, including approximate bi-maximal mixing in the neutrino sector. Atmospheric neutrino mixing is achieved via a large 23 entry in the neutrino Yukawa matrix which can have important phenomenological

Over this region of parameter space the model predicts a CP-even Higgs mass near 115 GeV, and a rate for τ→μγ which is close to its current experimental limit.
