He graduated from East High School in 1956, Oberlin College in 1960 and Columbia Law School in 1963.In 1963 he clerked for Judge Carl McGowan in the U.S. Court of Appeals before accepting a teaching position at the State University of Iowa Law School. In 1978 he accepted the position of Dean of the Ohio State University Law School, a position held until 1985 when he returned to the faculty as a teacher of torts and anti-trust. 1988-1991 Jim served as Special Assistant to the President of the Ohio State University. He retired from teaching in 2005. As age and Parkinson's Disease took a toll on his body, he remained cheerful, optimistic and upbeat and was an inspiration to many. The family expresses thanks for the good care he received at Westminster-Thurber and for the many doctors who encouraged and cared for him through the years.
