Dean Logan's picture

David Logan has served as Dean at Roger Williams University School of Law in Bristol, RI since 2003. A graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law, Dean Logan clerked for a federal judge and practiced with a major Washington, D.C. law firm, where he represented Native American tribes. He was a member of the faculty of Wake Forest University School of Law from 1981 - 2003, where he won awards for his teaching of Torts, Media Law, and Professional Responsibility. His publications, focusing on the intersection of tort law and the First Amendment, have appeared in major journals, including the Michigan Law Review and the Virginia Law Review. He is an elected member of the American Law Institute, and served as an Advisor to the Restatement (3d) of Torts. Among the law schools he has presented at are the University of North Carolina, Santa Clara, Brooklyn, Kentucky, and Maine.

Dean Logan is a frequent commentator on legal issues, having appeared on television (The O’Reilly Factor, Fox News, NBC Evening News, and Nightline), radio (Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and Marketplace), and print media (Time, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the Financial Times). Most recently, he has been widely quoted on the complex civil liability issues arising out of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico -- as close to the action as the New Orleans Times-Picayune, and as far-flung as the BBC and Voice of Russia.

He was born in New York City and grew up in the Washington, D.C. area. He earned his BA from Bucknell, MA from Wisconsin-Madison, and JD from Virginia. He was a varsity basketball player, head dj of the campus radio station, and a music critic for Rolling Stone.
