Other officers of the section include Professor Christiana Ochoa of Indiana University School of Law as Chair-Elect; Professor Stephanie Farrior of Vermont Law School as Secretary; and the undersigned, Professor Cindy Buys of Southern Illinois University Law School as Treasurer. Rounding out the Executive Committee are immediate past-chair Professor Mark Wojcik of John Marshall Law School; Professor Hari Osofsky of the University of Minnesota School of Law; Professor Matthew Charity of Western New England Law School; Professor William Mock of John Marshall Law School; and Professor Anthony Winer of William Mitchell School of Law.
