Legal scholar John S. Beckerman was named the new associate dean for academic affairs at the Rutgers University School of Law at Camden, N.J., on June 4. Beckerman will oversee the development of the curriculum at the Rutgers-Camden law school, which enrolls 762 students. “I am confident that John will do an extraordinary job in this crucial position,” said Dean Rayman L. Solomon. “He will bring his intelligence and uncommon good sense to bear in carrying out his duties.” Beckerman has authored numerous articles on such topics as securities litigation, civil discovery, and the history of early English law. He co-authored an article, “Let the Money do the Monitoring: How Institutional Investors can Reduce Agency Costs in Securities Class Actions,” that is generally credited with inspiring Congress to enact the lead plaintiff provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Beckerman practiced law in New York City and taught at the University of Michigan, Yale, and Benjamin N. Cardozo law schools. He earned the University of Michigan law school’s L. Hart Wright Award for Excellence in Teaching. He also served as a law clerk for the Hon. Jose A. Cabranes, and as U.S. District Judge for the District of Connecticut. Beckerman received his bachelor’s degree from Union College in 1966. He then earned his master’s degree in history from the University of Iowa and his Ph.D. in history from the University of London, where he was a Marshall Scholar. In 1983, he received his Juris Doctor degree from Yale.
