Daniel Keating
Tyrrell Williams Professor of Law

“I enjoy teaching commercial code courses because the students are invariably surprised by how interesting they find the material to be. The students come to appreciate that there is an unanticipated human element behind the various rules of commercial law as well as an elegant logic to the whole enterprise.”

"The law is fundamentally about how we treat one another – our rights and obligations towards each other.  It’s important to remember that cases are about real people with real problems who come to court to get their disputes sorted out while being treated with dignity, courtesy, and respect."
