Law Professors Speak at Denison
Posted: February 19, 2008
Law and philosophy may not seem like natural partners, which makes the notion of Denison’s philosophy department bringing two professors of law to speak all the more intriguing. Joseph Tomain and Michael Cioffi, two attorneys and professors of law, will speak on “Thinking & Practicing Law: Lessons from Literature & Philosophy,” on Wednesday, Feb. 27, at 8 p.m., in Higley Auditorium (100 Ridge Road). The convocation is free and open to the public.
Tomain is dean emeritus and the Wilbert and Helen Ziegler professor of law at the University of Cincinnati College of Law. Cioffi is partner in Blank Rome LLP, adjunct professor at the University of Cincinnati College of Law, and a former assistant attorney general. The two have collaborated in the past on scholarly abstracts linking legal ethics and professionalism in the humanities.
