Professor Akindemowo Appointed to ABA Committee
October 14, 2010
Thomas Jefferson School of Law Professor Eniola Akindemowo has accepted an invitation to co-chair the General Provisions Sub-Committee of the American Bar Association’s Business Law Section UCC Committee. She will be co-chairing the sub-committee with Professor Scott Burnham, Curley Professor of Commercial Law of the Gonzaga University School of Law.
“The ABA is the foremost association of lawyers in the U.S. It also has a distinguished international presence in terms of its reputation, scope for networking, and the many opportunities to contribute in a real way to cutting edge legal issues that it presents,” said Professor Akindemowo. “I am honored to have been invited to play a small part in the practical leadership of this tremendous association. I look forward to facilitating opportunities for dialogue, debate and decisive action – some of the things the Business Law Section of the ABA is well known for – in the field of commercial law – one of my core areas of expertise. I have long been interested in the intersection of contracts, payments and e-commerce. I anticipate that the sub-committee for General Provisions and Relation To Other Law will provide ample opportunity for stimulating explorations of that topic, as well as the impact of contemporary commercial law on current affairs generally.”
