November 3, 2016
After nearly 45 years of service to the University of Kentucky College of Law, Harold R. Weinberg, Everett H. Metcalf, Jr. Professor of Law, will be retiring in December.
Professor Weinberg, a longtime leader at the law school and in the legal community, has taught at UK Law since 1972. He is a scholar in the areas of uniform commercial code, antitrust, legal drafting and intellectual property. He has published pieces in numerous law journals, including the Tulane Law Review, Journal of Legal Studies, Minnesota Law Review, Business Lawyer, and Journal of Intellectual Property Law.
Prior to coming to UK Law, Professor Weinberg practiced law with Ulmer, Berne, Laronge, Glickman & Curtis (now Ulmer & Berne) in Cleveland, Ohio. In 1987, he served as a visiting professor at the University of Virginia and, in 1978-1979, he was a fellow in the Law and Economics Program at the University of Chicago. He is a graduate of Case Western Reserve University (1966) and a Coif graduate of its School of Law (1969), where he served on the Editorial Board of the Case Western Reserve Law Review. He also holds an LL.M. degree from the University of Illinois.
“Professor Weinberg has made countless contributions to UK Law and has touched many of our lives,” said David A. Brennen, Dean at UK Law. “The College of Law community is greatly appreciative of his service and we wish him well on the next phases of his journey.”
The Law Alumni Association plans to honor Professor Weinberg at a reception in the spring. Details regarding the celebration will be made available at a later date.
