Deborah Thompson Eisenberg is now vice dean of Maryland Carey Law, overseeing academic affairs and operations, and leading the law school when the dean is absent. She rises to the role from her position of associate dean for academic affairs. Eisenberg is also the Piper & Marbury Professor of Law and faculty director of Maryland Carey Law’s Dispute Resolution Program.   

Her scholarship focuses on dispute resolution, employment law, and equal pay, and she brings her expertise in conflict resolution and problem-solving to her new administrative role.

She is active in the national dispute resolution scholarly community, currently serving as chair regent of the American Association of Law Schools Dispute Resolution Section.

She started her legal career at the Baltimore firm Ober Kaler (now Baker Donelson). Eisenberg received her JD from Yale Law School and graduated as valedictorian with a BA from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.  

Chaz Arnett has been promoted to professor of law with tenure. His research explores the interplay between race, digital technologies, and criminal legal processes.

Arnett’s most recent work examines the role that surveillance technologies play in perpetuating racial inequities through policing and corrections. He is an affiliate of the Center for Critical Race & Digital Studies and was a 2021-2022 fellow at Data & Society. His latest article, “Black Lives Monitored,” appears in the UCLA Law Review. 

Prior to joining the faculty, Arnett was an assistant professor of law at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. Before teaching, he was a trial attorney with public defender offices in Baltimore and New Orleans, and a staff attorney with the Advancement Project. As a recipient of the Satter Human Rights Fellowship, he also worked with the International Center for Transitional Justice on issues of constitutional development in Zimbabwe, and asylum cases for Zimbabwean refugees in South Africa. Arnett holds a JD from Harvard Law School.  

Will Moon has been promoted to professor of law with tenure. His research focuses on corporate charter competition, corporate governance, offshore finance, and private international law. Moon’s scholarship has appeared in the Duke Law Journal, the Iowa Law Review, the Michigan Law Review, the Northwestern University Law Review, and the Vanderbilt Law Review. His latest article, “Anonymous Companies,” is published in the Duke Law Journal.  

Prior to joining the faculty, Moon was an acting assistant professor in the Lawyering Program at NYU School of Law from 2016 to 2018 after working as a litigation associate at Boies, Schiller & Flexner, LLP in New York City, where he specialized in cross-border commercial disputes.

Moon holds a JD from the Yale Law School, where he was a senior editor of the Yale Law Journal and a Coker Fellow. He received a BBA from the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, where he was the founding editor-in-chief of the Michigan Journal of Business.
