Lloyd Hitoshi Mayer joined the faculty as an associate professor of law in 2005 and became a full professor and associate dean in 2011. He earned his A.B., with distinction and honors, from Stanford University in 1989 and his J.D. from Yale Law School in 1994. While at Yale, he was a John M. Olin Fellow in Law and Economics and served as business editor of the Yale Law and Policy Review and as an editor of the Yale Journal on Regulation. Following graduation, he clerked for the Honorable Lowell A. Reed, Jr., United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. He then joined Caplin &amp; Drysdale in Washington, D.C., first as an associate and later as a member, where he concentrated on tax issues, particularly for nonprofit organizations. He teaches courses at Notre Dame Law School in federal income taxation, business enterprise taxation, election law, and not-for-profit organizations. He also lectures at the Notre Dame Mendoza College of Business on legal issues facing nonprofit organizations. Professor Mayer’s areas of research interest and expertise include advocacy by nonprofit organizations, the growing intersection of election law and tax law with respect to lobbying and other political activity, and the role of nonprofits both domestically and internationally. /assets/71666/original/mayer.jpgLAW70121, Not-For-Profit Organizations LAW70369, Election Law LAW70605, Federal Income Taxation LAW70609, Taxation of Business Enterprises<a href="">Nonprofits, Speech, and Unconstitutional Conditions,</a> 46 Conn.

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.jpgLAW70503, Family Law LAW70910, Insurance LAW73145, Law and Economics LAW75717, Alternative Dispute Resolution<b>Books</b> Family, Law, and Community (U.

Professor McKenna joined the Notre Dame Law School faculty on a permanent basis in the Fall of 2008 after visiting for a semester in the Spring of 2008. Prior to joining the faculty, Professor McKenna was a member of the faculty at Saint Louis University School of Law and practiced law with an intellectual property firm in Chicago, where he primarily litigated trademark and copyright cases.
