My colleague Michael Moreland just made the following very welcome announcement to the Villanova Law community:
I am pleased to announce that the 37th annual Giannella Lecture will be delivered by Susan Stabile, the Robert and Marion Short Distinguished Chair in Law at the University of St. Thomas (Minnesota) School of Law. Professor Stabile is one of the nation's leading employee benefits and pensions scholars as well as a noted author in the area of Catholic social thought and law. In addition to editing the leading casebook Pension and Employee Benefit Law, 5th ed. (Foundation Press, 2010), Professor Stabile recently published Growing in Love and Wisdom: Tibetan Buddhist Sources for Christian Meditation (Oxford University Press, 2012). Professor Stabile received her BA from Georgetown University and her JD from New York University School of Law, where she was editor-in-chief of the NYU Law Review. After graduation from law school, she was associated in New York and Hong Kong with the law firm of Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen and Hamilton, where she practiced corporate and securities law and later specialized in employee benefits and executive compensation matters. Prior to joining the St. Thomas faculty, Professor Stabile was the Dean George W. Matheson Professor of Law at St. John’s University School of Law. We look forward to welcoming Professor Stabile back to Villanova next year.
