Faculty members promoted to professor

Professor Marcia Zug

Professor Ben Means

Congratulations to faculty members Ben Means and Marcia Zug who were promoted to the rank of “Professor of Law” in late December 2016.

Professor Means, who joined the school in 2008, teaches Business Corporation, Business Crimes, Contracts, Liberty Seminar, and Mergers & Acquisitions. Before becoming a faculty member at the School of Law, he practiced at two New York City firms. Before that, he served as a law clerk to the Honorable Rosemary Pooler of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. His scholarship focuses on the governance of closely held business organizations, particularly family-owned businesses.

Professor Zug joined the law school faculty in 2007. In 2016, she published her first book, “Buying A Bride,” which tells the provocative history of mail-order marriages. At the School of Law, Zug teaches Family Law, Advanced Family Law, and American Indian Law. Her research focuses on family law, as it intersects with immigration law, and she has published numerous articles in nationally-recognized journals such as the Yale Law Review, Queen’s University Law Review, and the Virginia Law and Policy Review, among others.
