The George P. Smith, II, Distinguished Visiting Professorship-Chair of Law and Legal Research endowment was established by George P. Smith to broaden students' exposure to scholars and judges of national and international reputation and to allow distinguished visiting scholars the opportunity to do research at Indiana University and share their ideas with the faculty and students of Indiana University and the Maurer School of Law. George P. Smith, an Indiana native, received his B.S. degree in business, economics, and public policy in 1961 from Indiana University and his J. D. from the Indiana University School of Law in 1964. He was awarded an LL.M from Columbia University in 1975 and an Honorary Degree from Indiana University in 1998. George P. Smith has been a professor of law at The Catholic University of America, in Washington, D.C., since 1977.
