Corporate law expert and professor Paul G. Mahoney has been appointed the 11th dean of the University of Virginia School of Law. Mahoney, 49, joined the law faculty in 1999. His appointment as dean will be effective July 1. He succeeds the retiring dean, John C. Jeffries Jr. As academic associate dean from 1999 to 2004, Mahoney administered the school’s curriculum and academic policies. He has won an All-University Outstanding Teaching Award, the Law School’s Traynor Award for excellence in research, and the Corporate Practice Commentator’s award for top corporate and securities law articles. Mahoney also is one of only five faculty members to hold the most eminent chair at the Law School, the David and Mary Harrison Distinguished Professorship, and the youngest to have the title. “Mr. Mahoney’s talents, wisdom, and capacity for visionary leadership assure that one of America’s great centers of scholarly excellence will continue to thrive,” said UVA President John Casteen III. A pioneer in the use of empirical methods in legal scholarship, Mahoney has published dozens of articles and monographs in law reviews and peer-reviewed finance and law and economics journals. His teaching and research areas include securities regulation, law and economic development, corporate finance, financial derivatives, and contracts. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and was an associate editor of the Journal of Economic Perspectives from 2004 to 2007 and a director of the American Law and Economics Association from 2002 to 2004. Mahoney graduated from Yale Law School in 1984, and he clerked for Judge Ralph K. Winter Jr. of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. Before joining the UVA, he practiced law with the New York’s Sullivan & Cromwell. Outgoing Dean Jeffries launched a $150 million fund-raising campaign, improved student recruitment, and enhanced curricular and public service programs during his tenure. After a yearlong sabbatical, he will return to teach full time in the law school.
