Left NDLS Fall 2013 Professor M. Cathleen Kaveny, a scholar who focuses on the relationship of law and morality, joined the Notre Dame Law School faculty as an associate professor in 1995 and was named the John P. Murphy Foundation Professor of Law in 2001. She earned her A.B. summa cum laude from Princeton University in 1984, and holds four graduate degrees from Yale University including her M.A. (1986), M.Phil (1990), J.D. (1990) and Ph.D. (1991). A member of the Massachusetts Bar since 1993, Professor Kaveny clerked for the Honorable John T. Noonan Jr. of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and worked as an associate at the Boston law firm of Ropes & Gray in its health-law group. Professor Kaveny teaches contract law to first-year law students at the Notre Dame Law School. She also teaches in the Department of Theology. She offers a number of seminars which explore the relationship between theology, philosophy, and law. One seminar, “Mercy and Justice,” explores those concepts using texts drawn from case law, analytic philosophy, Byzantine history, as well as both medieval and contemporary theology. Another seminar, “Complicity,” looks at the morality of contributing to the wrongdoing of others from an interdisciplinary perspective. Professor Kaveny’s new book, <i>Law’s Virtues: Fostering Autonomy and Solidarity in American Society,</i> will be available from Georgetown University Press this fall. She has also published about a hundred articles and essays, in journals and books specializing in law, ethics, and medical ethics as well as more popular venues such as <i>America and Commonweal,</i> where she appears on the masthead as a regular columnist. She has served on a number of editorial boards including the American Journal of Jurisprudence, the Journal of Religious Ethics, the Journal of Law and Religion, and the Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics. She has been a Senior Fellow at the Martin Marty Center at the University of Chicago (2002-2003) and the Royden B. Davis Visiting Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies at Georgetown University (1998). She is a member of the Steering Committee of Notre Dame’s Institute for Advanced Study.  /assets/71654/original/kaveny.jpgLAW60105, Contracts LAW70844, Faith, Morality & Law Seminar LAW73827, Mercy & Justice Seminar LAW73829, Ethics & Law at the End of Life LAW73830, Complicity Seminar<b>Books</b> LAW’S VIRTUES: FOSTERING AUTONOMY AND SOLIDARITY IN AMERICAN SOCIETY (Georgetown U.

Margaret “Peg” Brinig is the quintessential interdisciplinarian, melding her expertise with law and social science in empirical studies of families, social capital, and social welfare legislation. Prof. Brinig is best known for her expertise in family law. She sits on the executive council of the International Society of Family Law, and recently published Family, Law, and Community: Supporting the Covenant (University of Chicago Press, 2010), which offers a distinctive study of legal reform from the perspective of family dynamics and social policy. The book examines a range of subjects of current legal interest including cohabitation, custody, grandparent visitation, and domestic violence. She concludes that conventional legal systems and the social programs they engender ignore social capital: the trust and support given to families by a community. Currently, Prof. Brinig is collaborating with another colleague, Dan Kelly, on a new Law, Economics, and Business seminar (beginning fall 2010). The seminar will feature speakers from within Notre Dame’s law school, economics department, business school, and other departments, as well as speakers from other law schools and universities. Law students and graduate students from other departments will have the opportunity to read, discuss, and comment upon seminal scholarship by leading academics while earning course credit for participating in the seminar. At the University of Notre Dame, Prof. Brinig is a Fellow of the Institute for Educational Initiatives at Notre Dame, and works closely with the Institute’s Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) Program. She continues to conduct groundbreaking research with colleague Nicole Garnett on the negative impact of Catholic K-12 school closures on poor neighborhoods. Prof. Brinig has been honored for her work at a Notre Dame football game, and won the Distinguished Professor Award at George Mason University. She is a member of the American Law Institute. /assets/71610/original/brinig.jpgLAW60105, Contracts LAW70503, Family Law LAW73145, Law and Economics LAW75717, Alternative Dispute Resolution Insurance<b>Books</b> Family, Law, and Community (U.

Matthew J. Barrett, a member of the Notre Dame Law School faculty since 1990, teaches business-related courses, currently accounting for lawyers, analytical methods for lawyers, and federal income taxation. He has also taught business associations, business planning, not-for-profit organizations, and seminars studying the intersection between law and accounting. His seminars during the fall semesters in 2008 and 2009 focused on the stock option scandals and the credit crisis, respectively. In 2001, the graduating class selected him as the Law School’s Distinguished Teacher. In 2010, he was appointed as an adjunct professor at New York University School of Law to teach a course in Financial Accounting for Lawyers for the NYU/IRS Continuing Professional Education Program sponsored by the Office of Chief Counsel of the Internal Revenue Service. Professor Barrett earned both his B.B.A. and his J.D. summa cum laude from Notre Dame in 1982 and 1985, respectively, graduating at the top of his law-school class. A member of the Ohio bar since 1985, he clerked for the Honorable Cornelia G. Kennedy at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit (1985-86), and worked as an associate in the tax group at the Columbus, Ohio, law firm of Vorys, Sater, Seymour & Pease (1986-90). Professor Barrett became a Certified Public Accountant in Ohio in 1987. The Ohio Society of Certified Public Accountants awarded him its Silver Medal for the second-highest score on the May 1982 Ohio CPA examination, and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants awarded him its Elijah Watt Sells certificate for performance with high distinction on the May 1982 Uniform CPA examination. In 1997, Professor Barrett joined David R. Herwitz, now Professor Emeritus at Harvard Law School, as co-author of the second edition of the law school casebook, Accounting for Lawyers, a text whose roots date back to the first casebook on accounting for law students in 1948. More recently, Professor Barrett co-authored unabridged and concise versions of the fourth edition in 2006. Foundation Press published combined supplements for those fourth editions in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. To date, these texts have been adopted for classroom use at more than 100 different law schools, including seventy that have used a fourth edition. Professor Barrett actively participates in the life of the Law School, the University, and the local South Bend community. In 1998, the Student Bar Association awarded him the Captain William O. McLean Community Spirit Award for exceptional contributions to community life. In 2010, Professor Barrett and his wife received The Spirit of Holy Cross Award from the Priests and Brothers of the Congregation of Holy Cross, Indiana Province for “years of diligent and deft service as [lay collaborators] with the Congregation of Holy Cross.” That same year, he also received the Grenville Clark Award from the University of Notre Dame for volunteer activities advancing the cause of peace and human rights. Within the Law School, he currently serves on the Loan Forgiveness Committee (2008 to present). He has previously led the Ad Hoc Committee on the Honor Code (2010-2011), Promotions Committee (2007-2008), and the Loan Forgiveness Committee (2001-2004); served on the Appointments Committee (1999-2001, 2002, and 2004-2006), the Building Committee (2001-2009), the Curriculum Committee (1994-1998 and 2001-2004), the Promotions Committee (2006-2008), and the Public Interest Committee (1997-1999); and volunteered as faculty advisor to the Business Law Forum (1998-2003). Professor Barrett has served as a member of the Accountancy Advisory Board in the Mendoza College of Business since 1994 and on the Niebuhr and Clark Awards Committee since 2010. He previously served a term on the University Committee on Appeals (2009-2012), two terms as the Law School’s elected representative to the University’s Faculty Board on Athletics (1998-2004), serving as chair of the subcommittee on student welfare (2001-2004), a member of the subcommittee on communications (2000-2001), and a member of the University’s Ad Hoc Committee on Drug Testing of Student-Athletes (2001-2003). Professor Barrett also served on the Committee on Student Life and the Subcommittee on Student Activities for the Colloquy for the Year 2000 (1991-92) and the Niebuhr and Clark Awards Committee (1997-2002). Outside the University, Professor Barrett has served as chair (1999-2000) and member (1997-2000) of the Committee on Audit and Association Investment Policy for the Association of American Law Schools, on the editorial board of the Journal of Limited Liability Companies (1994-1998), and as recording secretary of the taxation committee of the Ohio State Bar Association (1989-1990). He is a member of the ABA Section on Business Law, Committee on Law and Accounting (since 1995) and was elected as an alumnus member of Phi Beta Kappa in 2002. Professor Barrett periodically assists the Notre Dame Clinical Law Center with tax issues, volunteers with the Tax Assistance Program in the Mendoza College of Business, and has advised the South Bend Center for the Homeless on various tax and corporate matters. He is a parishioner of St. Joseph Church in South Bend, where he serves as a hospitality minister and a member of the St. Vincent de Paul Society. He served as an elected member of the Parish Pastoral Council from 1999-2002 and on the Strategic Planning Steering Committee from 1999-2005. He has also served a member of the board of directors of the St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Joseph County, Inc. He is married to Kate Barrett, who works part-time for Campus Ministry as the assistant director of undergraduate ministry. They have three sons and one daughter. /assets/71514/original/barrettm.jpgLAW70100, Accounting for Lawyers LAW70605, Federal Income Taxation LAW73147, Accounting Law Seminar (Credit Crisis)<b>Books</b> <i>Materials on Accounting for Lawyers</i> (4th ed.
