November 05, 2007

Julian Davis Mortenson, a litigation associate at  Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale & Dorr, will join Fordham Law School as a Visiting Assistant Professor for an 18-month period beginning in January, 2008. Mr. Mortenson will initially teach in the school's International Justice Clinic, and is to teach additional courses next fall.

"Julian visited campus last spring, and I am delighted that he accepted our offer to return as a visiting faculty member," said Dean William Michael Treanor. "He brings an in-depth understanding of critical legal issues and the practice of lawyering; and is an outstanding addition to the Fordham Law community."

Mortenson was recently published in the Iowa Law Review. Prior to working at Wilmer Hale, Mortenson served as an associate legal officer in the office of President Theodor Meron of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia. Before his work in Yugoslavia, he clerked for Justice David Souter of the Supreme Court and Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson of the Federal Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. He is a graduate of Harvard College and holds a J.D. from Stanford Law School where he was class secretary and served on the Stanford Law Review.
