In honor of his prominent role in the Denver legal community, an inaugural named faculty position has been funded in Larry Treece’s name at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law.
The Lawrence W. Treece Professor of Corporate Governance Law professorship recognizes a scholar in the field and will support faculty research and student-faculty collaborations in the corporate governance area. Larry was chosen as the namesake of the position for his widely respected role as one of Denver’s top corporate advisors and trial lawyers.
In the announcement, Bruce Smith, Dean of the Sturm College of Law, said, “It is particularly fitting that this gift honors Larry Treece, a titanic figure in Colorado legal and civic life, whose firm has been a tremendous supporter of Denver Law.”
In its first year, Professor J. (Jay) Robert Brown Jr., Director of the law school’s Corporate and Commercial Law Program, will assume the professorship. The position was funded by a gift from theRacetotheBottom Inc., sponsor of the acclaimed Race to the Bottom blog and faculty-student forum dedicated to addressing improvements to the corporate governance process.
