Michael T. Cahill became President and Dean of Brooklyn Law School on July 1, 2019, returning from Rutgers Law School, where he had been Co-Dean and Professor of Law. Before departing in 2016 to assume the Rutgers deanship, he was a member of the Brooklyn Law faculty for 13 years. He also served Brooklyn Law School as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs (from 2010 to 2013) and as Vice Dean (from 2013 to 2015).

As dean, Cahill holds the Joseph Crea Chair in Law. He is also a tenured Professor of Law on the faculty.

Dean Cahill’s scholarship focuses primarily on criminal law, though he has also written about and taught courses in health law and policy. His criminal-law work includes three books written with Paul H. Robinson: the general one-volume treatise Criminal Law (Aspen, 2d ed. 2012), the student casebook Criminal Law: Case Studies and Controversies (also with Shima Baradaran Baughman; Wolters Kluwer, 4th ed. 2016), and Law Without Justice (Oxford University Press, 2006).

Dean Cahill received J.D. (magna cum laude) and M.P.P. degrees from the University of Michigan and his B.A. from Yale University. After graduating from law school, where he was a note editor for the Michigan Law Review, he served as a law clerk to Judge James B. Loken of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. He then was involved as staff director and consultant, respectively, for major criminal-code reform projects in the states of Illinois and Kentucky. Before joining the Brooklyn Law School faculty in 2003, Professor Cahill taught at Chicago-Kent College of Law as a visiting assistant professor of law.

Education
J.D.

The University of Michigan, founded in 1817, celebrates a long and distinguished history. It was in 1787 that the Northwest Territorial Ordinance provided public land for this and other Midwestern universities and established a tradition of respect for excellence in higher education. Three Native American nations—the Ojibwa (Chippewa), Odawa (Ottawa), and Bodewadini (Potawatomi)—subsequently granted certain lands for use of the University of Michigan and by the end of the 19th century, Michigan was the largest and most generously supported public university in America and already a leader in graduate education. The University of Michigan Law School, one of the oldest law schools in the nation, was founded in 1859. But unlike other highly selective law schools established in that era, admission was never restricted to the privileged. When Gabriel Hargo graduated from the Law School in 1870, Michigan—then the largest law school in the country—became the second American university to confer a law degree on an African American. That same year, Michigan was the first major law school to admit a woman, and in 1871, graduate Sarah Killgore became the first woman with a law degree in the nation to be admitted to the bar; by 1890, Michigan had graduated more women than any other law school. That commitment to access and diversity joined an equally powerful commitment to excellence, which continues to this day.
