Robert E. Scott Distinguished Professorship

2000

The Robert E. Scott Distinguished Professorship in Law was funded with gifts from alumni, colleagues, and friends of Professor Scott, who stepped down as dean of the Law School in 2001. An authority on contracts, bankruptcy, and commercial transactions, Robert E. Scott joined the law faculty in 1974. He was appointed to the University's Center for Advanced Studies from 1988 to 1990 and, in 1991, became dean, overseeing the evolution of the new Law Grounds and the school's rise in national prominence. After a decade as dean of the Law School, Professor Scott stepped down to return to teaching.
