They are three of Pitt Law’s most beloved, long-standing faculty. Emeritus faculty Cy Fox, Bill Brown and Bob Harper came out of retirement and returned to the classroom this year after collective lifetimes of service to the School of Law.
“We asked each of them to consider coming back for a short period of time to help the School fill several important curricular needs. And we are so delighted and honored that they accepted our invitations,” says Lu-in Wang, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of Law. “They each have deep connections to the School, having spent the majority of their professional lives here. Both Cy Fox and Bob Harper are alumni as well. It’s just wonderful to see them as an integral part of the School again.”
And their colleagues and students couldn’t be happier.
Cy Fox returned for a semester to teach land transfer and finance courses, and Bob Harper taught criminal law, evidence and criminal procedure this past year. Professor Brown will continue to teach in the ’07–’08 academic year, teaching federal income tax, estate and gift tax, and taxation of corporate reorganizations.
