Christopher Drahozal named Rounds distinguished professor of law
After 12 years on the KU faculty, Christopher Drahozal has been named the John M. Rounds Distinguished Professor of Law. Drahozal, who specalizes in arbitration and dispute resolution, is internationally recognized as an expert in his field. On that subject he has published numerous books and articles, made presentations and practiced throughout the United States, Canada and Europe.
Interim Dean Mike Davis, '83, called the decision "a great one for the University and for the School of Law." He added, "Chris Drahozal could be on virtually any law faculty in America. Fortunately, he is at KU, and this honor will no doubt help us keep him here for a long time."
Drahozal also received the school's Immel Award for Teaching Excellence in 2004. Before teaching, Drahozal practiced law in Washington, D.C., and clerked for the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal in The Hague, the United States Supreme Court and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
The Rounds professorship was established by John M. Rounds, l'39, in 1986.
