Professor Freer Named to LexisNexis Advisory Board

Professor Freer

Richard D. Freer, the Robert Howell Hall Professor of Law, has been appointed to the Advisory Board for LexisNexis Law School Publishing. He will commence his three-year term in January 2008. The LexisNexis Advisory Board consists of eight leading legal scholars, who provide advice on acquisitions, marketing, sales, pricing and the editorial process. 

"It is a great privilege to be named to the LexisNexis Advisory Board," said Freer. "I look forward to working with an impressive group of scholars and advising LexisNexis on a variety of topics."

Professor Freer is a nationally recognized scholar in civil procedure and federal courts who has written or co-authored several books on these topics. His casebook on civil procedure, co-authored with Professor Wendy Perdue of Georgetown University Law Center, is published by LexisNexis. Now in its fourth edition, the book has been adopted at more than 100 law schools and is one of the leading casebooks in the field.

Freer also is co-author, with Emory Law colleague George Shepherd, of a popular casebook on business structures and a co-author, with Martin Redish of Northwestern University School of Law, of a text on federal courts. His new sole-authored treatise on civil procedure for Aspen Publishers was released last year.
