When they retire later this month, Professors Larry Church and Ralph Cagle will have logged decades of combined service to UW Law School.

Larry Church, the Volkman-Bascom Distinguished Professor of Teaching, joined the Law School faculty in 1968. Since then, he has focused his teaching and scholarship on constitutional law and property, as well as on criminal and environmental law. Throughout his career, Church received numerous awards for teaching excellence, winning the Wisconsin Law Alumni Association’s Teacher of the Year distinction several times.

Ralph Cagle joined the faculty in 1990, when he became director of the Lawyering Skills Course (then known as the General Practice Course). Throughout his law school career, Cagle was active in efforts to reform legal education to better prepare and train lawyers for legal practice. As current president of the State Bar of Wisconsin, Cagle will continue working to improve the professional lives of lawyers and to advance the legal profession.

Professors Church and Cagle, both UW Law alumni, taught their last classes here in December.
