Douglas Berman

Three distinguished members of The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law have been awarded professorships, as recently announced by Dean Alan C. Michaels.

Professor Douglas A. Berman is the Robert J. Watkins/Procter & Gamble Professor of Law. His principal teaching and focus is in the area of criminal law and criminal sentencing, though he does have practice in the fields of legislation and intellectual property. He is co-author of a casebook, Sentencing Law and Policy: Cases, Statutes and Guidelines, and co-managing editor of the Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law. He also is the sole creator and author of the widely-read and oft-cited web log, Sentencing Law and Policy, which receives more than 100,000 page views per month and has been covered by The Wall Street Journal, Legal Affairs magazine, Lawyers Weekly USA, Legal Times, Columbus Monthly, and other media.

Sharon L. Davies is the John C. Elam/Vorys Sater Professor of Law. Her primary research focus is in the area of criminal law and procedure. In 2010, Oxford University Press published her book Rising Road: A True Tale of Love, Race, and Religion in America, which recounts the revenge murder of a Catholic priest over an 18-year-old girl’s conversion to Catholicism and her marriage to a Puerto Rican migrant.  Her articles have been published in a variety of leading journals, including Michigan Law Review, Duke Law Journal, Southern California Law Review, and Law and Contemporary Problems. She is co-author of the leading treatise on health care fraud, Medicare and Medicaid Fraud and Abuse.

Professor Edward B. Foley is the Isadore and Ida Topper Professor of Law. As the director of Election Law @ Moritz, he is one of the nation’s preeminent experts on election law. His current research focuses on improving the processes for resolving disputed elections, and he has been asked to lead an American Law Institute project on election law. He has published scholarly articles, including The Founders’ Bush v. Gore: The 1792 Election Dispute and Its Continuing Relevance.
