The University of the District of Columbia’s Clarke School of Law has a contracts visitor this year, Charles H. Martin, who joins the school as a visiting associate professor of law. UDC got full ABA accreditation on August 8. (Belated congratulations!)
Martin is an internationalist as well as an experienced practitioner. He earned a B.A. at Harvard, a J.D. at UC-Berkeley, and an M.B.A. from Columbia. He practiced with Hogan & Hartson, the U.S. Department of the Navy, the D.C. Office of Corporation Counsel, and the Florida Office of Legal Affairs, and taught at Villanova and Florida State, before joining Sallie Mae, where he worked for 14 years. In that job he was responsible, among other things, for negotiating contracts for taxable and tax-exempt funding for colleges and universities.
He’s been a Visiting Faculty Fellow of the Civic Education Project, teaching law in Baku, Azerbaijan, and taught graduate and undergraduate students at the Open Society Institute’s Network Scholarships Pre-Academic Summer Program in Istanbul, Turkey. In addition to Contracts, he’ll be teaching International Business Transactions and Commercial Law.
