The UF Law faculty has been bolstered by the addition of two new professors this semester. Leonard L. Riskin, a noted authority in alternative dispute resolution, comes to UF from the University of Missouri School of Law, where he was C.A. Leedy Professor of Law and served as director of the Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution from 1984 to 2002, and again from Summer 2004 to Summer 2006. Riskin has written several books and numerous articles on alternative dispute resolution, articles on law and medicine and torts, and essays for popular magazines. In recent years, he has written about the benefits of mindfulness meditation for lawyers and mediators. He also has been chair of the sections on Law and Medicine and Dispute Resolution of the Association of American Law Schools. Rodney J. Uphoff joins the faculty as a visiting professor and interim director of clinical and skills programs. He also comes to UF from the University of Missouri School of Law, where he was Elwood Thomas Missouri Endowed Professor of Law and director of the University of Missouri South Africa Educational Program. Before joining the Missouri faculty in 2001, Uphoff taught at the University of Oklahoma for 11 years, where he served as their director of clinical education for three years. Uphoff also was one of the lawyers appointed to defend Terry Nichols in the Oklahoma bombing case.
