    Jack M. Beermann

    Jack Beermann's scholarship focuses on administrative law and civil rights litigation against state and local governments and their officials. Professor Beermann is co-author, with Ronald Cass and Colin Diver, on a widely used administrative law casebook. His articles have appeared in prominent American journals such as the Supreme Court Review, Stanford Law Review, UCLA Law Review, Duke Law Journal and Boston University Law Review, and in foreign law journals including Germany's Rechtstheorie and China's Administrative Law Review. Recent articles include ''Congressional Administration'' in the San Diego Law Review and the ''Constitutional Law of Presidential Transitions'' in the North Carolina Law Review. In 1998, he co-authored an article that examined civil rights violations in the popular television drama NYPD Blue.

    Before joining the Boston University faculty in 1984, Professor Beermann clerked for Judge Richard Cudahy of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. In 2008, he was visiting professor at Harvard Law School and in 1997, he was distinguished visiting professor at DePaul Law School. In 2004, 2005, and 2007, he taught at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel, and in 2002, he taught at the China University of Political Science and Law in Beijing. He has lectured in Israel, Germany, Australia, Morocco, Portugal and Canada. At BU, Professor Beermann currently teaches administrative law, civil rights litigation, introduction to American law (for foreign LLM students) and local government law.

    Jody Freeman

    Jody Freeman, the Archibald Cox Professor of Law, is a leading scholar of administrative and environmental law and the founding director of the Harvard Law School Environmental Law and Policy Program. Professor Freeman served in the White House as Counselor for Energy and Climate Change in 2009-10. In that role, she contributed to a variety of policy initiatives on greenhouse gas regulation, renewable energy, energy efficiency, transmission policy, oil and gas drilling, and comprehensive energy and climate legislation to put a market-based cap on carbon. Freeman led the White house effort on the Obama Administration's national auto policy -- the landmark agreement among the federal government, the auto industry and the states, to set the first federal greenhouse gas emission standards and the most ambitious fuel efficiency standards in U.S. history. After leaving the administration, Freeman served as an independent consultant to the President's bipartisan Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. She has been appointed to the Administrative Conference of the United States, the government think tank for improving the administrative and regulatory process. In 2011, she was elected to the American College of Environmental Lawyers. In 2012 Professor Freeman was elected as an outside director of ConocoPhillips.

    Colin Diver

    Reed's 14th president, Colin S. Diver, came to Reed during a challenging time for small colleges. A national focus on enhancing vocational training and technology-based learning was contesting the very foundations of a liberal arts education. In addition, during Diver's tenure, the country experienced the worst economic downturn since the great depression. Nonetheless, Diver's insistence that the college stay true to its historic role as a community of scholars and font of innovation inspired a time of great progress, increased national recognition, and financial stability for the college. Upon his retirement from Reed after a decade of service, Reed's board of trustees stated that Diver had, in the years leading up to the college’s centennial, inspired the Reed community ''to see and love the college anew.''

    Diver came to Reed from the University of Pennsylvania, where he served as the Charles A. Heimbold Jr. Professor of Law and Economics and, before that, as dean of the law school. He holds a law degree from Harvard and served as a faculty member at Boston University School of Law and as a visiting professor at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. He held posts with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and with the Mayor's office in Boston and has been a member of the executive committee of the Harvard Law School Visiting Committee, a trustee of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and a trustee of Amherst College, where he received the honorary degree Doctor of Laws in 1990.
