The Robert H. Mundheim Professorship of Law and Business
The University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law has established the Robert H. Mundheim Professorship of Law and Business, an endowed professorship to honor Robert H. Mundheim of Shearman & Sterling, who also serves at the College of Law as Professor of Corporate Law & Finance.
“I appreciate this honor immensely, particularly since it was made possible by the many people who I know personally and professionally,” noted Mundheim. “I greatly enjoy my time at University of Arizona Law in large part because the students have been such thoughtful and active participants in my seminar and my faculty and staff colleagues have been so supportive.”
In his over six decade-long career, Mundheim served in numerous roles; he was professor and dean at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, senior executive vice president and general counsel of Salomon Smith Barney Holdings Inc., general counsel to the U.S. Treasury Department, and special counsel to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
In 2015, Mundheim was the recipient of ALI’s Distinguished Service Award. “The American Law Institute is incredibly fortunate to have had more than 50 years of Bob Mundheim’s wisdom, guidance, and leadership,” said ALI President David F. Levi. “In addition to his role on ALI’s Council, he acted as an adviser or consultant on the Federal Securities Code, Corporate Governance Principles, Compliance and Enforcement Principles, and the Restatement on the Law Governing Lawyers projects. He also was instrumental in the decision of the ALI to launch the Restatement on Corporate Governance in 2018. In every one of these roles, Bob has been unwaveringly thoughtful and institutionally minded, with a great sense of humor and a willingness to give and take in the process of getting to a consensus. He is a brilliant lawyer with a passion for law reform and ardent debate. It is so fitting that the University of Arizona has established the Robert H. Mundheim Professorship in Law & Business.”
The inaugural Mundheim Professorship of Law and Business has been awarded to Barak Orbach of University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law, who is the founding director of the School of Law’s Business Law program. Orbach specializes in the area of antitrust and regulation, with recent research in the antitrust policies in the digital age.
