Many JD applicants feel that they are purchasing a brand when they choose a law school, but the educational experience you’ll have is what is crucial to your future, and no one will affect your education more than your professors. Each Wednesday, we profile a standout professor at a top law school. Today, we focus on Brian J.M. Quinn from the Boston College Law School.
Brian Quinn teaches “Corporations,” “Mergers & Acquisitions” and “Deals” at Boston College Law School. Quinn joined the school in 2008 after serving as the Teaching Fellow for Corporate Governance at Stanford. Earlier, Quinn worked in private practice in Palo Alto, where he focused on technology-related commercial transactions. Quinn also has an interest in international development, having served as Vietnam coordinator for Harvard’s Institute for International Development. He began his career as a social policy aide to the late Senator Edward M. Kennedy. Winner of the 2011 Professor Emil Slizewski Award for Faculty Excellence, Quinn blogs on legal developments in corporate governance and mergers and acquisitions at the M&A Law Prof Blog.
