2/20/08--Boston College Law School is pleased to announce that Brian Quinn has accepted the School's offer to join the faculty in the fall of 2008.
"This is an important first step in strengthening our business law curriculum," said BC Law Dean John H. Garvey. "Brian is a dynamic teacher and scholar, and will be a wonderful addition to our faculty."
Quinn, currently on the faculty at Stanford Law School, holds his undergraduate degree from Georgetown University, a Masters of Public Policy form Harvard, and his J.D. from Stanford Law School. Prior to teaching at Stanford, he was an associate at Cooley Godward in Palo Alto, where he represented public and private technology clients in merger and acquisitions transactions. He has served as a country coordinator for the Harvard Institute for International Development, and as a legislative aide to Senator Edward M. Kennedy.
At BC Law, Quinn will focus on Corporate Law and Mergers and Acquisitions. In his second year he will add an innovative course called the "Art of the Deal," which he has taught at Stanford Law School, and which brings in entrepreneurs and venture capitalists to talk to students about strategic and pragmatic issues confronted by corporate lawyers in financing and mergers.
