TJSL Welcomes Professor Michael Hayes

Thomas Jefferson School of Law welcomes Professor Michael Hayes, who is here at TJSL as a Visiting Professor for our Spring 2013 Semester.

“I’m thrilled to be here because I’m interested in California because the future of law occurs here,” said Professor Hayes, who is on the faculty at the University of Baltimore Law School faculty as an associate professor.

“He’s not just a vibrant labor and employment law scholar with extensive practice experience representing major labor unions, he’s also a dynamic, dedicated teacher who has won more than a half-dozen teaching awards from students and faculty in his teaching career, said TJSL Professor Anders Kaye, Chair of the Appointments Committee. “He’ll be a wonderful addition to the law school community.”

Professor Hayes has also taught as a visiting professor at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland; the National Labor College in Silver Spring, Md.; and at Albany Law School. Prior to his teaching career, Hayes practiced labor and employment law for six years with Sherman, Dunn, Cohen, Leifer and Yellig in Washington, D.C., and for one year as a staff counsel to the National Labor Relations Board. Professor Hayes has a J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law, and a B.S. from Cornell University where he graduated first in his class from the School of Industrial and Labor Relations.

Professor Hayes, an experienced Torts teacher, will be teaching two sections of Torts II in Spring 2013, taking over the sections from Professor Susan Bisom-Rapp who will be on sabbatical this semester.

On behalf of the entire TJSL family, welcome!
