IU McKinney Professor Named to Alliance Steering Committee
Professor Linda Kelly Hill was elected to the steering committee of the Indiana University Alliance of Distinguished and Titled Professors. She takes office on October 1, 2012. The Alliance works to enhance the excellence of faculty, staff, and administrators, and their research, teaching, and service.
“It will be an honor to serve on the Alliance Steering Committee,” Professor Kelly Hill said. “The Alliance Steering Committee serves as elected representatives of the Alliance, which is comprised of professors holding a distinguished rank, titled professorship or an endowed chair at Indiana University. The Steering Committee therefore plays a critical role in serving as a liaison between the faculty of Indiana University and our central administration. I look forward to representing the faculty’s interests in teaching, scholarship and service. In so doing, it will be my pleasure to work towards creating an even stronger learning environment for our students."
Professor Kelly Hill teaches Conflicts of Law, Family Law, Immigration Law, and Trusts and Estates. Consistent with her teaching, Professor Kelly Hill's scholarship focuses upon how traditional norms regarding family and gender roles have influenced numerous areas of law. Her scholarship regularly explores how such norms affect such legal areas such as immigration, domestic violence, sexual harassment and probate. In 2006, Professor Kelly Hill also began an immigration clinic at IU McKinney Law. Through the work of the law school's upper level J.D. and LL.M. students, the Immigration Clinic is providing pro bono legal representation to Indianapolis' indigent immigrant community.
