Congratulations to our Contributing Editor, Keith Rowley, who has just been granted tenure and promoted to full professor at UNLV. Rowley earned his B.A. at Baylor, his M.P.P. at Harvard's Kennedy School, and his J.D. at Texas, where he was an executive editor of the Texas Law Review. Before going into teaching, he clerked for Judge Thomas Reavley on the Fifth Circuit before practicing law for five years in Houston. Among Keith's other gigs are serving on the executive committee of our sister AALS Section on Commercial and Related Consumer Law, and co-chair of the ABA Business Law Section's Subcommittee on Sales, but he's best known to students as the author of the popular Q&A: Contracts.
Good news on the tenure front also for two of our colleagues at Stetson, where James W. Fox, Jr., and Kristen D. Adams both were granted it, effective in the fall. Jamie (left) received his B.A. at North Carolina and his J.D. at Michigan, where he was Editor in Chief of the Journal of Law Reform. He practiced with D.C.'s Covington & Burling before going into teaching. He's doing some interesting work these days on the connection between 19th century contracts ideology and the 14th amendment.
Kristen earned her B.A. at Rice, her J.D. at Emory (where she was managing editor of the Law Journal), and her LL.M. from Yale. She practiced four years in Atlanta before joining the Stetson faculty in 2000. She currently holds the Leroy Highbaugh, Sr. Chair in Faculty Research and is working on a casebook on commercial transactions for West.
