Faculty Additions, Changes for 2008-09
Garry Jenkins, an associate professor of law at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, was named the College’s associate dean for academic affairs for the 2008-09 school year. Prof. Jenkins will fill the position of Associate Dean Donald B. Tobin, who will be on a research leave of absence during the fall semester. Prof. Jenkins primarily teaches business associations, the law of nonprofit organizations, and lawyers as leaders, and is the co-director of the College’s Program on Law and Leadership.
Prof. Tobin will return to the College in the spring semester 2009 following his sabbatical. He will assume the role of associate dean for faculty while Prof. Joseph Stulberg, the College’s current associate dean for faculty, takes a research leave of absence during the spring semester. Prof. Tobin teaches Federal Income Taxation, a Tax Policy Seminar, Legislation and the Legislation Clinic, and is the co-director of the College’s Program on Law and Leadership. Professor Stulberg teaches primarily in the area of dispute resolution, including such courses as Legal Negotiations and the Multiparty Mediation Practicum.
This fall, Professor Daniel Tokaji will be on leave while he serves as a visiting professor at Harvard Law School.
