Professor Jack Harrison
The David and Nancy Wolf Chair in Ethics and Professional Identity, endowed by alumnus David Wolf and Nancy Wolf, enables Chase to offer and to continually expand education in the areas of ethical conduct and social justice. It supports programming related to ethics and professionalism, including enhancements to pro bono and public interest service by students, training in diversity, equity and inclusion, recruitment of an ethicist-in-residence and development of lectureships in ethics and professional responsibility.
The chair was established in the 2023-24 academic year with the appointment of Professor Jack Harrison. Professor Harrison, who joined the Chase faculty in 2011, enhances the chair by his combined experience as a practicing lawyer, a law professor and a seminarian with a degree in theology. Prior to joining the Chase faculty he practiced for almost 20 years in major Cincinnati law firms. He teaches such courses as Torts, Civil Procedure, Professional Responsibility, and Sexual Orientation and the Law. He also directs the Chase Center for Excellence in Advocacy, which offers students experience primarily in courtroom advocacy.
