Maryland Carey Law welcomes two new members to its faculty this fall.
Assistant Professor Michael Pappas, who is interested in the balance between governmental responsibilities and private rights in managing natural resources, comes to the Environmental Law Program from Tulane University Law School, where he was a Forrester Fellow and Instructor in Legal Writing. He holds bachelor and master’s degrees from Stanford, where he also earned his JD.
Professor Pappas will teach seminars in coastal resources and natural resources law plus a property course.
Assistant Professor Andrew Blair-Stanek hopes to use scholarship and doctrines from other parts of the law to improve tax law. The former software design engineer for Microsoft also practiced in the Washington, DC office of McDermott, Will & Emery, LLP, where he handled cross-border mergers and international tax planning. He graduated summa cum laude from Princeton and earned his JD at Yale.
Professor Blair-Stanek will teach courses in income taxation, introduction to taxation of business enterprise and taxation of intellectual property, focusing on a special topic.
