Odinet Named Josephine R. Witte Professor of Law


Christopher Odinet, senior research fellow in the Social and Education Policy Research Program, was recently named the Josephine R. Witte Professor of Law. Odinet's research focuses on commercial law, consumer finance, and property law.  More specifically, he is interested in digital/crypto assets, financial regulation, bankruptcy, and mortgage lending. 

Regarding named fellowships, College of Law Dean Washburn said: “Named professorships advance the College of Law in transformative ways. These professors have continuously excelled in their teaching, scholarship, and service. Private endowments like this recognize exceptional faculty and thereby help us to reward and retain the best of them.”

The Josephine R. Witte Professorship in Law was founded in 1998 through the Iowa Law School Foundation (ILSF) as the beneficiary of Josephine's perpetual trust.
