Sale Named UI's Daum Corporate Law Scholar

University of Iowa Law Professor Hillary Sale has been named the F. Arnold Daum Corporate Law Scholar at the UI College of Law.

Sale specializes in scholarship in corporate and securities law and teaches in those areas as well. She is a faculty advisor to the Journal of Corporation Law and coordinated the publication's first corporate governance symposium in Iowa City this spring.

Sale is a graduate of Harvard Law School and earned her M.A. and her B.A. in economics from Boston University. Before coming to the law faculty in 1997, Sale practiced law with Hale and Dorr, LLP in Boston, Massachusetts. She also clerked for Richard S. Arnold of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and worked in various staff positions for Massachusetts state government.

"I am delighted to award this collegiate Corporate Law Scholar honor to Hillary Sale in recognition of her outstanding teaching and scholarship in the important and highly visible field of corporate securities law," said N. William Hines, dean of the College of Law. "Hillary is a rising star nationally in the field, and we look forward to the fruits of her scholarship."

"It's an honor to be named the College of Law's Daum scholar, and I'm extremely grateful to the Daum family for providing me with the support to research and study corporate and securities law," said Sale, who has taught at the law school since 1997.

The Daum endowment will ultimately support a chair in the college in corporation law, but in the short term, the Daum family has authorized use of the proceeds from the endowment to support the work of a talented junior faculty member specializing in corporation law.
