Did you take Federal Courts with Professor Rush? Then come to the 2010 Dunwody Lecture and hear the author of your casebook speak on qualified immunity!

The Florida Law Review presents its annual 2010 Dunwody Distinguished Lecturer: Dean John C. Jeffries, Jr. On Feb. 16, at 11 a.m. in the Chesterfield Smith Ceremonial Classroom (room 180), Dean Jeffries will deliver a lecture titled, “Rationalizing Qualified Immunity.” This lecture is free and open to the public; everyone is encouraged to attend.

Jeffries served as dean of the University of Virginia School of Law from the fall of 2001 until the summer of 2008. Jeffries joined the Virginia law faculty two years after earning his law degree there in 1973. His primary research and teaching interests are civil rights, federal courts, criminal law, and constitutional law. Jeffries has co-authored casebooks in civil rights, federal courts, and criminal law and has published a variety of articles in those fields. He also wrote a biography of Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr.

In 1986, Jeffries was appointed the inaugural Emerson Spies Professor of Law, a position created to honor a long-time teacher and former dean. Jeffries has also held a variety of other academic appointments, including the Arnold H. Leon Professorship.

During law school, Jeffries served as editor-in-chief of the Virginia Law Review. He received the Z Award for the highest academic average and the Woods Prize for the outstanding graduate. Immediately after graduation, he clerked for Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr., before serving in the U.S. Army as a second lieutenant.
