The William & Mary Business Law Review, a new publication edited by William & Mary law students, has announced that nine distinguished graduates of the Law School and the Dean of William & Mary's Mason School of Business will serve on its first Advisory Board.
Members of the Advisory Board include R. Joseph Barton (B.A. '91, J.D. '00), partner at Cohen Milstein; Michael E. Baumann (J.D.'79), partner at Kirkland & Ellis; Paul R. Eckert (J.D. '96), partner at Wilmer Hale; Thomas Frantz (B.A. '70, J.D. '73, LL.M.'81), President and Chief Executive Officer of Williams Mullen; Lawrence H. Gennari (J.D.'89), partner at Gennari Aronson; Amy J. Greer (J.D.'89), partner at Reed Smith; Elizabeth Besio Hardin (B.A. '85, J.D.'89), partner at Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy; Dennis C. Hensley (J.D.'70), partner at Sidley Austin; Lawrence B. Pulley, Dean of William & Mary's Mason School of Business; and M. Nicole Williams (J.D. '96), partner at Williams Mullen.
The Review's Editor-in-Chief Benjamin David Novak '10 said that the publication's Executive Board invited these ten individuals to serve on the Advisory Board in recognition of their prominence in the business law community. He expects the Advisory Board members to serve as liaisons between the publication and the greater business law community.
"Advisory Board members will recommend topics for staff members' student notes and suggest topics and speakers for future symposia, among other activities," Novak said.
Cutler Professor of Law Jayne Barnard, the Review's faculty advisor, said, "The men and women on the Advisory Board are key contributors to the idea bank into which students can tap in thinking about the challenges of business and law today."
The William & Mary Business Law Review will publish professional articles, essays, and student notes that explore the nexus among business, law, and ethics. The Review selected its Volume 1 editorial staff in August 2009 and the first issue of that volume will be available later this month.
