On May 28, 2008, The Ohio State University Executive Vice President and Provost Joseph A. Alutto named Alan C. Michaels as interim dean. Michaels replaces Nancy H. Rogers, who was selected as interim Ohio Attorney General by Ohio Governor Ted Strickland.

Professor Michaels spent three years in private practice representing the Major League Baseball Players Association and then served for four years as a prosecutor in New York County before joining Ohio State in 1995. From 2001 to 2003, he served Moritz as Associate Dean for Faculty and has also been a Visiting Professor at the University of Michigan.

Professor Michaels’ research, primarily in the area of the mens rea of crimes and in the adjudicatory portion of criminal procedure, has been published in a variety of leading journals, including the Columbia Law Review, the Harvard Law Review and the Southern California Law Review.

He is coauthor with Professor Joshua Dressler of Understanding Criminal Procedure (4th edition) and serves as co-Managing Editor of the Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law. Professor Michaels was the recipient of the 1998-99 Outstanding Scholarly Paper Award from the Association of American Law Schools.
