89 University of Cincinnati Law Review 810


Professor John J. Murphy was my very first connection to the University of Cincinnati College of Law—and to the legal academy more generally. What began with an hour-long conversation in August 1993 lead to a wonderful twelve years as faculty colleagues and a dear friendship that continued for the fourteen years after I joined the Indiana University Maurer School of Law. John was legendary for his energetic and inspirational classroom teaching. But as my colleague and friend, John taught me through his constant examples what it means to be a supportive mentor, a beloved professor, and a devoted spouse and parent.
