Brooklyn Law Notes Spring 2019

In January, the Law School named Professor Christina Mulligan as vice dean for academic and student affairs and Professor Edward Janger as associate dean for faculty research and scholarship. Professor Stacy Caplow continues to serve as associate dean for experiential education.

Mulligan, who focuses her scholarship on efforts to adapt intellectual property law for the digital age, the relationship between law and technology, and theories of constitutional interpretation, oversees the Law School’s academic programs and new curriculum initiative.

Janger, the David M. Barse Professor of Law and co-director of the Center for the Study of Business Law and Regulation, is a nationally recognized scholar on bankruptcy and commercial law. In his new role, Janger focuses on facilitating and raising public awareness of faculty and student scholarship.

“Brooklyn Law School is a true community of scholars. We challenge each other, support each other, and make each other better,” he said. “Faculty and student writing serves the community and enriches the life of the Law School. I look forward to supporting that work and helping it to reach a broader audience.”

Caplow, who has served as associate dean for five years, supervises experiential learning throughout the Law School, in classrooms, in clinics, in externships, in simulation courses, and in workshops. In addition, she advises the Moot Court and ADR Honor Societies and the Public Service Law Center. She supervises the Pro Bono Scholars, co-directs the Safe Harbor Project, and recently co-founded the Center for Criminal Justice.
