Hall Center Welcomes Health Law Expert Nicolas Terry to the Faculty
The Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law is honored to announce that Professor Nicolas Terry has been appointed the Hall Render Professor of Law and also will serve as the co-director of the Hall Center for Law and Health as of January 1, 2012. Prior to joining IU, Terry was the Chester A. Myers Professor of Law at Saint Louis University School of Law, where he taught Torts, Products Liability, Health Information Technology, Law & Science, and Health Care Quality. Terry, who co-directed SLU’s top-ranked Center for Health Law Studies from 2000-2008, will now lead the law school’s program here in Indianapolis along with Professor David Orentlicher, who joined the Center in 1995.
“We could not have asked for a more qualified addition to our health law credentials. Professor Terry is universally known and respected in the field of health law and will increase the national prominence our Hall Center enjoys,” says IU McKinney School of Law Dean, Gary R. Roberts. “We are happy to welcome him to our law school family.”
Born in England, Terry was educated at Kingston University and the University of Cambridge, and first taught at the University of Exeter in England before joining the Saint Louis faculty. He has served as a Senior Fellow at Melbourne Law School and as a visiting faculty member at the law schools of Santa Clara University, the University of Missouri-Columbia, Washington University, and the University of Iowa. From 2008-10 Terry served as his school’s Senior Associate Dean. His research focuses primarily on the intersection of medicine, law, and information technology.
Terry replaces Professor Eleanor DeArman Kinney who retired from Indiana University in June of 2011 after founding and leading the Hall Center for Law and Health for 24 years.
The Hall Center will celebrate its 25th year in April of 2012.
