UW Law School Introduces 3 Faculty Members

The University of Wisconsin Law School is proud to announce the addition of three new faculty members. Cecelia Klingele and Mark Sidel join the UW Law School faculty beginning in the Fall of 2011. Paul Secunda will join the Law School for the summer and the fall semester as Visiting Professor.

Cecelia Klingele returned to the UW Law School, her alma mater, as a Visiting Assistant Professor in 2009. This past fall, Klingele became Assistant Professor. After receiving her J.D. in 2005, Klingele served as a law clerk to former Chief Judge Barbara B. Crabb of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin. She then served as a clerk for Judge Susan H. Black of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit and later clerked for Associate Justice John Paul Stevens of the United States Supreme Court. Professor Klingele's academic research focuses on criminal justice administration, with an emphasis on sentencing and correctional supervision practices that aim to prevent crime and reduce reliance on incarceration as the primary response to criminal offending. Klingele teaches courses in criminal law, criminal procedure, and sentencing and corrections.

Paul Secunda joins the UW Law School as Visiting Professor for the summer and the fall semester from Marquette University Law School. Secunda's primary research interest lies in labor and employment law. He will be teaching Employment Law during the summer and during the fall, he will teach Labor Relations Law and Education Law. Along with Professor Carin Clauss, Secunda is putting together a conference, "Constitutionalization of Labor and Employment Law," to be held October 28-29, 2011, at the law school.

Mark Sidel joins the Law School as Doyle-Bascom Professor of Law from the University of Iowa, where he served as Professor of Law, Lauridsen Family Fellow, and Faculty Scholar. Professor Sidel's work focuses on comparative law in Asia, comparative constitutional law, and the nonprofit sector and philanthropy in the United States and overseas. His books include Regulation of the Voluntary Sector: Freedom and Security in an Era of Uncertainty (Routledge, 2009), and Law and Society in Vietnam (Cambridge University Press, 2008). Sidel has served as visiting professor of law at Harvard Law School, Melbourne Law School, Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris and other institutions. He served earlier with the Ford Foundation in Beijing, Hanoi, Bangkok and New Delhi, and has consulted with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and other organizations. He recently completed service as President of the International Society for Third Sector Research (ISTR), which works to strengthen research on civil society and the nonprofit sector.

"We are very excited to be welcoming three tremendous scholars and teachers to our faculty," said Associate Dean Heinz Klug. "Cecelia, Paul and Mark bring an extraordinary range of legal experience and scholarship that will significantly enhance the law school community."
